Unwanted Popup on lower right desktop with link to GoogleSyndication.com

I am and end user and am getting a popup windows on my Windows 10 desktop

         (It's showing up in the lower right hand corner of my home screen - See sample image below).

 

Can anyone figure which GS account this is going to so that I can shut it down. 
             I am sorry if I am posting this in the wrong place, but I didn't know where else to post it.
(No opt-out option showing.)
Can't see it in active Task Manager App list.
Is this being caused by a virus or malware. or ??

Current Link on my screen goes to: 

https://www.googleadservices.com/pagead/aclk?sa=L&ai=COQ2JaovNWpS5JZmShwee9qHgC8z3yOxNx4DdwIQHjIuFng...

 

Popup Screen looks like this:

I think that I nailed it. 
Seems to have been caused by Polaris Office 2017 from Infraware.

 

Nasty!
