To add to Reddoug's post, if you are scanning in safe mode, always make sure you run a FULL scan, not a quick scan. The MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware (MBAM) safe mode version is not as powerful than the Normal Mode version.
Also if you have problems scanning, you can try the command line version of MBAM.
