    I notice that you do not seem to be running antivirus software.This is somewhat suicidal in today's digital world.

    Download the Norton Removal Tool (SymNRT) to your Desktop.
    Once downloaded please close ALL open browsers, also save any work because this may require a restart.

    Go to your desktop and double click on the removal tool and then click Setup.
    Once open Click Next
    Accept the license agreement and click Next
    Type in the letters/numbers that you see into the text box then click Next.
    Then click Next and the tool will start running.
    Once finished restart the PC and run the tool again to ensure everything has been removed.
    Delete Nortonremoval tool from your Desktop.


    Install Avira Free AntiVirus, from here ->
    Or: Avast

    Install, check for updates, run a complete systemscan

    Run Malwarebytes again; Update it; then run a full scan (remove all found Malwares)

    Reboot, attach new hijackthis log, along with new malwarebyte log.

    I have some suspicions that this could be pretty bad, but let's run a scan to see what we're dealing with.

    Download Dr.Web CureIt to the desktop:

    Doubleclick the drweb-cureit.exe file and Allow to run the express scan
    This will scan the files currently running in memory and when something is found, click the yes button when it asks you if you want to cure it. This is only a short scan.
    Once the short scan has finished, move dot to - Complete Scan
    Click the green arrow at the right, and the scan will start.

    Click 'Yes to all' if it asks if you want to cure/move the file.
    When the scan has finished, in the menu, click file and choose save report list
    Save the report to your desktop. The report will be called DrWeb.csv
    Close Dr.Web Cureit.

    Please attach the Dr.Web report in your next reply.
