    I wrote some Articles here on EE that will show you how to get rid of this.
    With this type of malware, the first step is to stop the "rogue processes" that are running - which will allow "Malwarebytes" to do the clean up for you.

    Several other fixes may have to be used, which are in the menu options of RogueKiller: (Stop-the-Bleeding-First-Aid-for-Malware) (Rogue-Killer-What-a-great-name) (Basic Malware Troubleshooting)

    Just one of the family of rogues.

    MalwareBytes as already suggested should remove it.
