Remove Deskstop Temperature monitor from computer

I'm trying to get rid of this adware/malware called Desktop Temperature monitor. I have Norton but I also downloaded MacAfee to see if it would delete it. I'm having no luck. Anyone can tell me how to remove this from my system as I already have tried to uninstall it from the control panel

Could you please tell us what name this program appears as in the list of programs that can be uninstalled.

What operating system are you running?

It sounds like this program is one that has been "bundled" with some other software.  Usually such bundled software allows you to untick it during the installation process of the software you have chosen to install, but sometimes they don't allow you the option to decline the other programs packed into the installer file.  In these cases you usually have to uninstall the program that it came bundled in.

This looks to be a very comprehensive guide by a guy named Stelian Pilici that leads you through Uninstalling in Windows, running a 3rd-party program to scan for leftovers and unwanted programs, and then removing browser add-ons that cause pop-up adverts from Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome:

The links for the suggested cleaners (AdwCleaner, MalwareBytes, and HitmanPro) all look sound and lead you to the correct pages.

Thank you DancingFighterG (great name ;-).
I hope you can get rid of it.  I hate those crappy and annoying bundled apps.
