So, I've downloaded absolutely nothing for weeks, apart from GTA V off of Steam. I get on my computer this morning, and BAM. Popups and everything when I launch Chrome, or try to click a link. I either get a popup, redirect, coupon offers, or just massive, annoying ads (including those god-awful video ads -.-). I've tried ADWCleaner, Hitman Pro, MalwareBytes, and Anvi Smart Defender. I haven't used Windows Defender, though. Any suggestions? It happens to all of my browsers.

Go to the directory where you have installed your windows now proceed as follows
X:/Program Files(x86)
In there delete all the folders which are odd one like copoundeals , smart delas ,AdBlocker etc...
Make sure all the folders are deleted and then you'll never have to encouter them again

I wouldn't recommend deleted anything if the OP didn't know what to delete. He/She might delete something that are required.

I actually found it in my registry after looking for hours. It hides out in the Chrome part of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>Software

RespectSale kept reappearing in Chrome -> More Tools -> Task Manager even after emptying out all Extensions folders.

Steps which fixed it:

1) Empty out the extensions folders for all Chrome profiles: C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\<profile number>\Extensions

2) Delete two unsigned DLL files (rightclick each file and see that there is no "digital signatures" tab):

c:\program files (x86|\google\chrome\application\GoogleChromeUpdater.dll
c:\program files (x86|\google\chrome\application\GoogleChrome.dll

Then download and run the chrome installer again.
