    you should follow the 8 step program for virus and malicious file removal.

    http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic58138.html

    After you complete the process someone will help you. I'm sure if you have any issues completing any of these steps someone will help.

    This should run and exit!

    It is a coverall and you may see a few errors related to it addressing something you do not need. This is normal ignore.

    then

    Do the TechSpot 8 steps: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic58138.html

    Skip no steps (do not install another virus scanner if you already have one, ask me before installing a Firewall).

    Most importantly update MalwareBytes and SuperAntiSpyware!

    Get the logs attached back.
