Yeah Im still having the same problem :thumbup2: tried a couple more anti-malware scans but still nothing :)

Also, while were trying to fix this problem, i have encountered another. My McAfee antivirus is detecting a PUP called firefox.exe in my temp folder, and despite the fact i have deleted it, it appears to be returning. It doesnt seem to be messing with the computer or anything by i suspect it may be spyware.

Thanks.

Edit: New DDS Log attached
