      Hi Jon
      If you want to remove it from your browser, your Windows version is not really a factor. Please see THIS VIDEO on how to restart Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer or Firefox.

      If you are using Microsoft Edge browser, please see THESE INSTRUCTIONS on how to factory reset it.

      Also, in order to use anti-malware software in order to remove the adware completely along with any other associated files and settings, please see THIS TUTORIAL.

      I personally prefer using SpyHunter, mainly because it is thorough in its scan and removes other associated files as well. Try it for yourself to see which one is more effective.

      Also, if you still have questions or have any other issues do not forget to register and ask about them in our forums.

      Best Regards,
