Whenever I type something into google there's a delay and then it comes up with a list of fake advertsand say's above it 'ads by extrasavings'. It also comes up with about a million pop ups and has made my laptop horrendously slow. The annoying thing is when I google the solution to getting rid of it it's either saying it's really easy to get rid of and just tells me to do the stuff I've already done:

-Uninstall the program from Programs and Features list (The programs not actually listed)
-Delete it via Internet explorer by going to add-ons and clicking disable on it (It's listed on the IE add ons as 'ExstraaSeavinnGs' but listed under 'unavailable and enable and disable are greyed out.

And also the other search results are just blogs or articles sponsored by Anti-Virus companies to make you download tceir ****ty software.

I've also tried uninstalling and reinstalling IE, and tried restoring my laptop to the day previous to which the virus took hold (it said it was unable to reset to this date).

It's such an annoying virus, has anyone else suffered anything similar and know how to get rid of it?

It will work if you do it properly. Make sure you download all the programs first so you don't need to reopen the browser between times. And reinstall IE when it's all done. Don't skip the hitmanpro step.

Thanks for the help but as I've said the program doesn't show up in the list of programs to uninstall and I explained about what it's like in add ons. Also I'm not downloading any anti-virus software as I've already got Kaspersky

Then skip that step. If you're not willing to download the software, you're not willing to fix it. No point asking for help either. Call Kapersky tech support?

If you're not willing to take advice then I don't know why you ask for help.

I really do recommend Malwarebytes, it's a free on demand malware scanner, it's fantastic and becuase it's only an on demand scanner, it doesn't conflict. (Unless you purchase the premium version).
Have you ran a scan with Kaspersky yet? That would be the best option.
