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?

Thanks

Run RKill:
http://www.technibble.com/rkill-repair-tool-of-the-week/
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.
