Default Help getting rid of a Malware Program...

I keep getting a stupid redirect program on Microsoft Edge that claims it's a "Critical Alert from Microsoft" and tries to hijack my browser.

I've used so many different anti-malware programs to try and locate and get rid of it, it's not funny anymore.

I don't want to have to delete my entire registry, here... I just want to find this stupid thing (assuming it's a Trojan/Worm) and get rid of it...

I don't want to have to pay money for an Anti Malware program to get rid of it.

Yeah, that's the one... it's seriously annoying.

I've tried installing stuff and running in safe mode but it still doesn't get rid of it.

I'm tempted to just reinstall Edge at this point...

I ain't spending $30 on a stupid program just to get rid of something that my browser shouldn't have in the first place.
