I've tried Windows security essentials,AVG free, G-Data Anti-Virus and Malwarebytes(although now something has disabled it and won't re-install properly). One will announce it's cleaned things off but then the next days new ones are back. I tried G-Data's full security suite but it kept sending windows showing "behavior modification" on any of the startup programs and then kept repeating the same ones without end. Firefox started allowing pop ups from sites like: "thedailyheralds.com,www.news4online.net and www.newsline-17.com". I blocked cookies from these but new ones appear. The latest syptoms were that any time any .exe program was started an error message with Famiweki.dll appended to the programs file name would appear saying that it wasn't a correct image. I eventually searched for Famiweki.dll and found it in C:\WINDOWS\system32. I erased it and that problem has stopped for now. Thanks for help on this problem which has been going on and off for several months.
