virus  - attention your computer may

This is one crazy virus.  The pop-ups usually happens when I try to attach a file in Chrome.  Also when I go to a site like www.bankofamerica.com it will pop up with an ad.  See attached pics.

Things I've tried:

Malwarebytes in safemode
Followed instructions on Google to reset Chrome browser and delete extensions.

There are a bunch of .exe files in my c:\users\<username>\Appdata\Local\Temp.  I stopped all the processes and was able to delete everything inside that folder.  Went into msconfig and made sure nothing was running at startup.  It actually appears like the virus is gone, however after a reboot or several hours the issue returns.

I'm sure it's something hiding in the registry that I have to delete manually.  anyone gotten rid of this particular virus before?
