How to get rid of "PC Mighty Max"

I cannot get rid of "PC Mighty Max"...have used Micro Essentials, Spysweeper, Webroot, etc., etc...but, obviously, it's still there because I am still getting annoying pop-ups.  But none of the virus removers seem to detect/remove it.  Any suggestions?

If you're using MSE and Webroot/Spysweeper on the same comp[uter you need to decide which program you wish to use and uninstall the other.

 

If you wish to keep using MSE please thoroughly review the following particularly the sections on conflicts betwee antimalware programs:
