Infected by an adware

Hey guys my computer is infected by an adware.
Occasionally a new tab(not window) opens to a travel (agencies) sites
they are not usually the same site every time
are these adds by thinkdigit? As i am usually surfing on forum i don't know if it is just a popup(which i doubt as I have ad-blocker installed)
I think I am affected by some adware
I will download a adware remover and check
do malwarebytes anti-malware detect it?

Any help will be appreciated since I have not dealt with adwares before

Check your browser add-on, If you found some malicious addon remove it. Also Post A Task Manager Screenshot with all process name seeing clearly.

Use Revo Uninstaller and remove if you see any suspicious programs.

and how do you think he is gonna spot a malicious program...he is not gonna sit back with complete database of malicious program to find it.

Thats the job of a good antivirus.

True, but sometimes it can be some toolbar or a program with easily recognizable adware name.

^Nothing suspicious, all clean. But please remove that babylon search for god sake and also google_update_service from startup.

Can you tell which addons you have installed in your browser?

@ OP: Post a screenshot of netstat cmd showing all processes connected to remote server. Maybe we will find the real culprit here.

Yup also tell us which addons are installed in your browser. Also try in other browser if there are ads like this.

BTW, I've doubt on a process. My doubts will be clear if you post a netstat screenshot.
