    I tried for many days to get rid of “ad by notification” (note word “ad” not “ads” appear under those banners). I failed and tried multiple different scans. The problem is that I can do your steps 2 and 3 but there is nothing on your on the list of programs on the control panel that I seems remotely suspicious. I have no idea what i am doing wrong but it has been driving me craze over the last few days. Please hep if you can.

    P.S. Thank you very much for your efforts you are providing a valuable service.

    I fell into a solution to remove Ad by Notification. I don’t really remember exactly what I did, but I clicked on something that exposed a list of Programs that I didn’t recognize. I deleted all of them and “VOILA”, the program was gone from my computer!
    None of the ideas that I got from the Internet helped, but this worked. I can’t replicate it, but there’s hope!
