I recently had problems with google and yahoo search results being redirected. Ran MalwareBytes and found Skynet listed several times. Removed them but now what happens is this: When I try to log on/reboot or start ANY program, several windows pop up saying " _____is not a valid image. " I can always proceed to open whatever I'm trying to start, and the redirects stopped but these messages won't stop.
Do I still have a virus/malware? Or is this just the residual effect of whatever it was that I did have?

I appreciate any help!

We Need to check for Rootkits with RootRepeal
  • Download RootRepeal from the following location and save it to your desktop.
  • Extract RootRepeal.exe from the archive.
  • Open Posted Image on your desktop.
  • Click the Posted Image tab.
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • Check all seven boxes: Posted Image
  • Push Ok
  • Check the box for your main system drive (Usually C:), and press Ok.
  • Allow RootRepeal to run a scan of your system. This may take some time.
  • Once the scan completes, push the Posted Image button. Save the log to your desktop, using a distinctive name, such as RootRepeal.txt. Include this report in your next reply, please.
