Full info here. Only use HitmanPro if needed. You have a trial time and if you don't want to purchase you will have to unininstall. Malwarebytes is free if you don't accept the trial time for Pro on installing.

Another good one is SAS free, click here, especially good when ran in safe mode.

This thing is a virus. I don't say that lightly but it replicates itself. I got it when I installed a DivX update. I purposely and carefully did not tick any of the boxes to install their crapware but it installed anyway.

I tried for 3 days to get rid of it, using all the various ways suggested, and more. In the end the only way to get rid of it from firefox was to save all my favorites as an html file, uninstall firefox and ticked the box to not save any settings. When I reinstalled ff it was gone.
