PUP or Virus

My OS is win 10 pro 64 bit and I seem to have a malware or virus of sort that displays an AD, Ad by Stack Player, and it sometimes plays a video or music.  I have run malware and also Avast programs, but it did not detect and get rid of this.  Is a way to get rid of this nuisance?  Thank u for your suggestions.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I did a Google search on Stack Player Removal and found several sites describing how to get rid of it.  Basically, look in Programs and Features and uninstall it from there and then remove it as an Add-On in all of your web browsers.

Also do the following:

Download Process Explorer from Microsoft Sysinternals, install it and run it.

Look for strange alphanumeric processes under the Explorer tree (on the left side).
If you find any, kill them with Process Explorer but do not restart.
Now run Malwarebyes again to remove the popups.

When done, run another scan and restart.

Thank u for all inputs.  I tried the easy way out, i.e. CompProSolv's suggestion, and it worked and got rid of the problem.  but to be sure, I also ran the Malwarebytes and the Avast programs that I have, and now that pest has gone away for good.  Thank u everyone.
