I have tried the regular McAfee virus scan, Windows Defender scan, Malwarebyte's Anti-malware. Nothing is able to find the problem.

I stupidly downloaded a "flash player update" from an untrusted website and by the time I realized the crime I was committing against my computer, it was too late. The download ended up being a anti-virus program that actually carried a virus. I read up a little online about this program. I'm not able to figure out how to completely remove it. The first thing I did was uninstall it. When the computer restarts, it is back again.

Please! Someone help me.

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum.
