I have been helped on this site before and you guys do a great job. I have a new problem that I don't think I ever fixed. Please help me remove it once and for all! I do have Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and am running a scan with it now, here is the result of the quick scan that I ran before I posted this. Please help me and let me know if I am doing the right thing to start off with. Oh and I cant boot in safe mode. Please help! Thanks

You have run a scan with definitions from way back in September 2009

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.41

I suggest you open the program and click on 'Update now' to fully update the program to the latest definitions which are

January 7th, 2010 Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware version 1.44 released.

Please then reboot and run a full computer scan with the up-to-date definitions;

  • The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart. (See Note)
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts.
Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process.
If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.

Please Copy and Paste the entire report for someone to check for you

thanks for your help, I updated the version and ran a full scan, here it is. It did make me restart because 3 of the items were too harmful to remove and I think it removed them after the restart:
