it must be my mom or my son going there because i dont use any of those sites. i removed the toolbars, removed programs, set the computer back to no remote access and ran all the programs you told me to run. i will ask my mom and son about sushi or whatever it is. anything else i need to do? my avast anti virus scans are only picking up files in a folder called Qoobox. dont know what that is. also, i didnt unselect anything from removal from malware bytes.
