Problem: Vimax advertisements are being displayed regardless of the browser we are using.
There seems to be a URL associated with the image (ad22 doubleclick net) although I'm sure this is probably a generic advertisement site.
I've documented what I've tried (see below) based on feedback I've read in other blogs.
My hope is that someone can review the HijackThis log and provide us the missing piece of the puzzle to be rid of the advertisements once and for all.
Thank you!

What I've Tried:Attempted to run SUPERAntiSpyware: had to change the name to install. Blue screens on me when opening the install wizard.
Ran Malwarebytes: Had to change name of the executable prior to running (it kept crashing on me). Successfully ran and found several issues.
Ran CCleaner: Browser and Registry
Ran AntiCyberCrime (my virus software): Found nothing
Re-ran Malwarebytes: Found nothing
Ran HijackThis (see immediately below)

Due to lack of feedback, this topic has been closed.
Twitter - My statements do not establish the official position of Microsoft Corporation, and are my own personal opinion. (But you already knew that, right?)
