Are you running Fedora, if so close you browser are remove .mozilla folder from you home directory if you use Chrome remove .config/google-chrome that will remove all your mozila and Chrome local installations plugins and such. While I do not know about the TradeAdExchange virus if you download that as pluging on your browser then that is how you can remove it. You may lose your favorites and other custom you make to your browser.
