I ran malware bytes today and removed about 60 items which included my websearch and some other questionable items like the one below:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\msvps.msvpsapp (Trojan.FakeAlert) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

If needed I can post the entire Malware bytes log -

After rebooting the pc to remove all of the items that were found I re-ran the scan and more my web search items appeared.

How do I get rid of my web search and the item listed above to make sure that all of the infections are gone?

Hello :thumbsup:

Use ATF Cleaner:
Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
Under Main choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.

If you use Firefox browser
Click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.

If you use Opera browser
Click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.

Notes for Windows Vista users:
On Windows Vista that "Windows Temp" is disabled, to empty "Windows Temp" ATF-Cleaner must be "Run as an Administrator"


Run RKill:
Rkill is a small, freeware and portable tool designed to terminate active malware processes allowing you to use other removal tools. Rkill is made by a Microsoft MVP “Lawrence Abrams” and is available in 4 different extensions. An .EXE, .COM, .SCR and a .PIF file.
The reason why Rkill comes in 4 different versions is because some malware will block .EXE files in an attempt to prevent you from running other malware removal tools, so this gets around that problem.
