Try using Revo Uninstaller. Even if it can't uninstall the application normally, it will force it to uninstall by wiping out all traces of its presence from the system.

After that, try running AdwCleaner to make sure that there are no leftover rogue registry keys or toolbars in your system.

I recommend running AdwCleaner two times in a row to check the removal of the application. During this time the computer might reboot.

This kind of adware always makes use of free downloads to get inside your machine. Therefore, look for the free programs that you recently downloaded from the web first if they didn't come from official website.

Then, clear out malicious browser extensions, components in the Control Panel as well as its file folder in the Program Files. If you still get ads by Positive Finds, you may consider uninstalling and reinstalling the browser.

Running the free version of MalwareBytes and then AdwCleaner usually remove all browser malware-caused redirections and inserted ads.

When you see unwanted adware on the PC, go to Control Panel and then remove any suspicious program from Programs and Features. Then go to your browser extensions/add-ons and disable unfamiliar add-ons.

Avoid installing suspicious programs and extensions in the future, and make sure to untick all "optional offers" checkboxes when you install something.
