I could really use some help somehow i got mgit on my pc (w10) and i just can't get rid of it. For clarification mgit is a legit ad company who serve a lot of the ads on the internet but somehow their ad malware seems to be legal??? 

i've attached screenshots of how it works

1) ad notifications keep randomly popping up in the bottom right side of the screen on top of games, videos and so on.

2) adding ads under the first native google ad links and above the regular links to whatever you've searched for. those links lead to a seperate yahoo page with the ad. It can be really difficult to tell where the ads end at the legit pages start. 

I've got kaspersky and north vpn and tried total av and malwarebytes, all did fuck all to fix it... I'm running out of ideas to get rid of this plague short of reinstalling w10....

Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

It may be an extension. Uninstall any extension you do not recognize in Chrome, Fire Fox, etc.
