I've also tried Malwarebytes, about 10 seconds into the scan the window disappears. It doesn't show up in task manager as a program that is running.
I've also tried running Hijack This. It brings up a box that says, "For some reason your system denied write access to the hosts file. If any hijacked domains are in this file, Hijack This may not be able to fix this. If that happens, click start, run, type notepad C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts and press enter. Find the line(s) that Hijack This reports and delete them. Save the file as 'hosts'. (with quotes)." When I click 'ok' on the box Hijack This runs for about 2 more seconds and closes.
After running Stinger, it indicated it fixed any problems. Upon restart, all the problems were still there. Then a windows appears that reads "Stinger may be infected Cannot continue".
I've had viruses in the past, but nothing like this. Could it be something else, like the age of the computer. (which is 8 years, but have hardly had a problem with it)
