    Please do the following:

    Download AdwCleaner:

    AdwCleaner Download
    • Save the program to the Desktop
    • Close all open programs and internet browsers.
    • Right-click on adwcleaner.exe and select: Run As Administrator
    • At the program console, click on: Delete
    • When the program is done, the computer is rebooted automatically, and a text file opens after the restart.

    Please post the
    AdwCleaner report in your reply. <<<---

    Also use the Junkware Removal Tool Download
    Save to the Desktop.

    Make sure you temporarily disable your AntiVirus, Firewall, and any other AntiSpyware applications.
    These programs may interfere with the running of JRT.

    Right-click JRT.exe and select: Run as Administrator
    The tool opens and starts scanning the system. Please be patient as this can take a while...

    When done, a report, JRT.txt is saved on the Desktop.

    Please post the contents of JRT.txt in your reply.
