Cant get rid of virus

Hi all,

I am running Mozilla Firefox and I am plagued by 'Ad by Notificatoin | Close' virus, it now has pop ups that slide in from the side and the hyperlinked words. I have followed every instruction I can find, I have ran Malware Bytes and even purchased the premium upgrade. I ran Malware in Safe Mode and it states no threats detected? I have also tried Revo Uninstall but could not see any unusual downloads. Mozilla is very slow and keeps crashing. I have reset Mozilla to default setting. and still nothing changes. Can anyone point me in a direction that might help.

Thanks

Oh and I forgot I am also getting the random survey pages show up when I open a new page from a legitimate link.

Try a System Restore to before the problem.

Press Windows Key + R and type rstrui.exe

Also try ADWCleaner

Have you tried ADWCleaner as mentioned by robintheumpteenth ? Download, scan (takes a while), accept their recommendations, restart.
