Remove/Get Rid of SCouponS Ads Virus from IE/Firefox/Chrome

My web browser gets attacked by SCouponS, and each time I open my Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome, the start page is opened as SCouponS. I reset my browser settings again and again but SCouponS keeps showing up soon after I reopen my browser. I do a full system scan with my AVG and nothing has been found yet. I need help!
