Remove Wholokki pop-up

A program called Wholokki is installed on my computer after I have downloaded and executed a program from cnet. I was not aware that there is a virus like Wholokki that is combined with the file I have downloaded. Now, this threat is beginning to control some aspects on my computer.

Wholokki pop-ups constantly showing various messages from different web sites. Ads also can be seen from the pop-ups. I search the web for this ‘Wholokki’ thing but didn’t find and links about this virus. I already removed the program that installed it but this thing still stays on the computer and looks like there is no way to get rid of it. After scanning the computer with malwarebytes, it found and deleted a couple of PUP. Sadly Wholokki virus is not part of that removal process. System restore didn’t help either. I am running out of options in dealing with this threat.

Please advise me how to remove Wholokki pop-up from my computer. Any tools or antimalware program that you suggest may help me uninstall this threat from my PC. Here is my system configuration.

Inspiron 15 Non-Touch
Intel Core i3-3227U processor
Windows 7 Professional, 64Bit, English
4GB3 DDR3L at 1600MHz

Sincerely,
