Got this one from Youtube... I tried following some of the removal tutorials, but I don't see the registry files I'm sposeto delete. It's as if they are hidden. I ran Eusing registry cleaner or whatever, that found a bunch of corrupt files, but I still can't run Add/Remove programs OR Malwarebytes. So, I'm sure this thing is still on my computer.

I ran GMER successfully and it found some nasty stuff, but I didn't know what to do, so I hit the OK button and now I can't find where GMER is installed. Combofix installed weird (probly b/c of the stupidware) so I can't open that either.

Where do I start?!
