    Thank you and hello for reading my post. A few days ago my computer got infected by system tools and I've been trying all the steps listed on various sites. I have run Malawarebytes on multiple occasions and it doesnt find it then I tried looking up manual removal tips (listed here http://www.techjaws.com/how-to-remove-security-tool-virus/) but nothing has worked. I cant find any of the host files that are listed and nothing is showing under the c/program data files. When I tried doing HiJack this logfile a popup saying it could not log host files for some reason came up but this is what did show.
