How to remove buildathome.info pop-up

My computer sometimes gets redirected to a mentioned web site. But most of the time I am receiving a pop-up from buildathome.info. It shows a box containing message “PC Performance is Poor,” “Like Asian Women” and so on. The first time it appears on my computer, I can clearly confirm that it is a virus activity. With that idea, there is no way that I will click any of the links and button from buildathome.info pop-up.

Looking at the whole URL of this virus, it seems that it is somehow linked to xtendmedia. Maybe this is the reason why I keep on getting advertisements from buildathome.info. Whatever the purpose of this virus is one thing that is not within my interest. All I want to do now is just to remove pop-up and redirect ads from http://www.buildathome.info/link…

Please tell me all are the best tools to get rid of this threat. I already run several tools like superantispyware, malwarebytes, and Norton eraser. As much as I want to return my Windows to previous settings, I have no saved restore point to run Windows system restore. Please tell me all possibilities to get rid of buildathome.info pop-up.
