I have followed all the 8 steps aprat from a couple of exceptions. i kept getting an error when trying to update my Java so have not been able to do that. I was also unable to update Malwarebytes Anti Malware but after doing a full system scan in safe mode i could open the program once again and update (although i have not run another scan yet). I believe i may have eradicated the problem but seeing as i went through all 8 steps i thought i might as well make sure everything has been removed. Below are my logs.
