    Please startup HijackThis scan only
    Place a tick next to all of the following entries
    Close all Internet browsers (like Internet Explorer)
    And then select FIX to all of them
    I noticed that you are use Symantec (ie Norton)
    Norton is one of the highest system resourced and lowest Virus detection Antiviruses around (that's not good :( )

    I would strongly recommend that you uninstall Symantec (Norton) Antivirus
    And then run the Norton Removal tool


    And then install (the much better ;) ) Avira free AntiVirus

    Then start up Malwarebytes again; Update it; then run another full scan (remove all found Malwares)
    You need to run this multiple times, until all hidden Malwares are uncovered and removed

    Please then save a new Malwarebytes log to be attached
    Then Restart
    Then run HijackThis scan and log, and attach the new log to a new reply

    2 logs pending ;)

    Thanks for the help! Whatever we did got rid of it. I think it was the files you had me fix through HijackThis but I also dowloaded the Avira and did a scan with that and it found and removed some stuff also. Thanks again,
