Hello :thumbsup:

Here's a Microsoft article that names "adware.bho":

ATF Cleaner: (free program, temp file cleaner, deletes cookies)
Instructions included at website.

"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."

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

Immediately after running Rkill, scan with Malwarebytes'.

So I did rkill and ran malwarebytes with nothing detected with the quick scan (ran as administrator to gain access to all necessary files) was going to do full scan next seeing as it has detected this thing before calling it an adware.bho. I know I'm still infected because when I tried to load this page it took over like a pop-up but instead of popping up it replaces my page, F5 fixes the page but again I'm positive theres more going on.
