ADWCleaner should get rid of all PUPs like this.

If it oesn't clear it when run nomally then boot into safemode (Tap F8 on boot up) and run it again from there.

I saw your post on ADW sometime recently and have found it excellent and quick.

Right-click icon then Run as Administrator is also recommended.

I had my own browser hijack too. First infection in a couple of years. Just took minutes to sort it instead of Malwarebytes hours.
