    Yeah I always check there after uninstalling/before reinstalling. specially if I'm having problems with settings in a program. That way it kills the registry links too.

    I looked in Task manager as it came back again today, and there was nothing related in there like the article you linked to says. However, I do have the scan results here which might help a bit more:

    Go ahead and delete this key.

    Okay, I removed the key 'DisableCMD'. Hopefully that should solve the issue, I'll let you know what happens.

    Nope, the same key has come back again. I've removed it with MalwareBytes and removed the key in regedit again, though I have a feeling it will probably just come back again ....

    Try running a Full Scan with your Anti Virus, than a full scan with Microsoft’s Malicious Software Removal Tool(Just type MRT in search), and then Malwarebytes again. Try to do it in safe mode.

    Yes, that's exactly what was picked up in the scan and what you said to remove in post #23. I've noticed though that it has now come back again since this morning.

    There was also a default key picked up when I searched, I'm not sure whether that should be deleted or not so I attempted it and it wouldn't let me. The default key did not have a value, though.

    I'll run the scans you suggested now, but after removing it again I may need to wait a few hours yet for it to come back.

    You could also look in services and see if there is anything related. Some malware have services so that it can repair it self. But the best bet is to scan in safe mode.

    I found this in Task manager, when I looked much more closely in the "Details" tab: wmiprvse.exe

    I honestly don't know what stood out to me about this, as I don't know some of the process names in Task manager, but something did about this name, and when searched Google, it seems to have given me incontrovertible proof it's related: https://www.google.co.uk/#q=wmiprvse+PUM+hijack

    The initial scans finished with nothing found, I'll let you know later what happens when I run it in safe mode.
