Win32-dns changer-zz issue @ startup

  1. ok this has been happening for the past two weeks now.

    Every time i start up the computer, I get my antivirus popping up, alerting me of a malware name Win32:DNSChanger-ZZ[Trj], with its filename constantly changing each time. I also get a box asking me on how to open up a mystery file. (see attached)

    I trired System Restore, and it fails. I thought my Avast got rid of it...no such luck.

    HEEEELLLP!!!!

    Running Malwarebytes alone will not resolve the issue. Please leave the log from Mbam and the other programs.
