Got hit with something nasty yesterday, spent the rest of the evening and a good part of today sorting things out, but I've still got something going on that I can't find. Malwarebytes scan will show clean, but then later on things start popping up again. I've had McAfee pop up with reports of things, and there are some things running that I can't identify. Haven't had trouble with any systems that I've had to clean before now, and of course it's my own machine giving me the headaches.

Let me know what needs to be done so I can get rid of this.

I'll post my own update on this one. Looks like I may have actually gotten rid of it and what was being found were the last remnants of garbage on the system. It was just strange that nothing was found on the first full scans that I did after the cleanup and then strange things started happening after that. Either way, I haven't had anything strange show up for the last day or two so it looks like it's gone.
