How to Block A.marketsnet –Remove A.marketsnet Easily

I picked up some malware that is randomly redirecting my chrome browser to websites that start with a.marketsnet.com . My Avast antivirus blocks the redirection to a.marketsnet.com.  I initially ran Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (logs of initial scan MBAM_1 attached) I quarantined the bad files in MBAM, rebooted and ran second scan that came up clean).  That did not fix my problem so I ran an Avast boot scan but that also did not fix the problem.
