I picked up the malwear WinBlueSoft while trying to get rid of another virus, didn't download it on purpose 'cuz I figured it was a fake. I got rid of my other virus with MalwearBytes, but now I'm stuck with WinBlueSoft and all of the popups. Tried to get rid of it with MalwearBytes, SuperAntiSpywear, and Adwear with no success. Any suggestions? By the way I am a computer idiot.

Reboot your computer and then run the Malwarebytes quick scan.

Then continue this process (reboot and quick scan) three times or until it shows zero infections.

Post the final log.

OK did it 3 times each time Malwear didn't detect anything and the popups are getting more frequent. Heres the log:

Try running a scan with SUPERAntiSpyware in Safe Mode.

Still not finding any virus even after the last scan. I rdisabled a few unnecessary icons from my system tray and the popups stopped. I still get the feeling the virus is still there though.
