Remove Sponsorship Virus—Stop Sponsorship Pop up

The narration of users that suffered the attack of Sponsorship

I am having this ‘Sponsorship’ pop-up virus on my computer. The ads coming from this malware is so annoying. It will pop up on new window or open a tab on Chrome and Firefox. Aside from that, Sponsorship virus freezes my browser whenever I am searching with Google. Closing the browser seems to fix the problem and that was my temporary solution. I hope someone can help me to solve this issue immediately.
I have tried running Malwarebytes and SpyBot and deleted the threat of sponsorship .However; none of the scans seem to work and help me remove the virus completely.  The ads pop up when I restart my computer. Is there any help to remove this virus?
I already have ABP Adblocker installed, but this one tab keeps popping open for some reason. The name of the tab reads Sponsorship, and the url it sends is: I'm getting pretty sick of it because I thought I was going to get away from pop-ups on firefox... .

What does Sponsorship do in the infected PC?

Sponsorship is basically an adware infection which aims to display unstopped pop-up ads and trick inexperience people for money. The popups by Sponsorship virus are very annoying and are full of misleading content. These advertisements are always related malicious websites, once you have clicked them, you will be navigated to these webpage and at the same time you also open a backdoor for other computer virus to invade into your compromised PC. As the creators of sponsorship are so tricky that give this virus the function to mutate and infect other system files, as a result, the normal pop-up blocker or browser settings cannot stop sponsorship pop-ups. Besides displaying annoying popup ads, the sponsorship virus will track your online activities and steals personal information of the victim user. What’s worse, Sponsorship adware also can cause other computer problems, it creates items to the startup entries to let the program run automatically when you start up your computer, and let the program reinstall automatically if you uninstall it from your computer. The performance of the infected PC will decrease day after day. It will take you a long to get start and open a webpage and sometimes the system crashes before users are able to save any data. All in all, sponsorship adware should be removed from the infected computer as soon as possible before it brings in other computer virus and makes more damages to the compromised computer system.
