Things any better ??

 

Still more work to do, I am going to post the instructions for the 3 programs i asked you to run earlier, it looks like you already ran them, run them again, you can bypass the instructions for the download as it appears that you have already downloaded them, run AdwCleaner first and post the log, then run Junkware Removal and post that log, then open Malwarebytes, check for updates and run the Threat scan and post the log

 

 

 
-AdwCleaner-by Xplode
 
Click on this link to download : ADWCleaner
Click on ONE of the Two Blue Download Now buttons That have a blue arrow beside them and save it to your desktop.
 
Do not click on any links in the top Advertisment.
 
  • Close all open programs and internet browsers.
  • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
  • Click on Scan.
  • After the scan is complete click on "Clean"
  • Confirm each time with Ok.
  • Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
  • Please post the content of that logfile with your next reply.
  • You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.
  •  
     
    ===============================================================================
     
     
    thisisujrt.gif Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
  • Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
  • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
  • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
  • Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.
  •  
     
     
    ===============================================================================
     
    Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware  to your desktop.
