Hi,
MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware should get it. If not post a HijackThis log for review.

This thing has spread like wildfire over the last two months. It keeps morphing into new variants and can be hard to shift.
If IndiGenus' suggestion of MBAM does not do it, I would suggest Smitfraudfix:

Run option 2 in safe mode.  Post the log.

If you still have problems after that, download and run SDFix:

It would also be a good idea to reset your hosts file:
