At the top of the Malware forum there is a notice Everyone MUST read this BEFORE posting for help in this forum.

As you have not followed that instruction this may be why you have not received a reply. Please go Here, follow ALL the instructions and post the logs that are requested.

Please also tell us what if anything your scans are showing with your Anti Virus and Malwarebytes, post the logs if you know where to find them.

I am marking this thread as solved as it stops me from checking its status every time I run a check on my subscribed threads. The thread will not be closed so you can still post back here if you need to at which point I can change the status back to In Progress.
