Greetings Group, I've been trying to remove the Antivirus Suite and have followed the directions I've found googling, however it is persistent. I am including a Hijackthis Log, but I can't see anything so I might just be overlooking something. When I delete the registry entries, it respawns so something is obviously hidden somewhere. I have found the references listed. The only roadblock I've hit is I can't get to the user file that installed this with Admin it says it's blocked and when I try to grant Admin rights to access the user folder it says I can't do that. I am doing this in Safe mode and have ran Malwarebytes, Advanced System Care, CCleaner and EFRC Registry Cleaner and all of them tell me there isn't any malicious software. However when I log in as the user Antivirus suite spawns and disables McCafee and I can't do jack. Internet access is disabled and the keyboard is disabled. Anyone have any ideas???? I'd say I'm pulling my hair out but I shave my head so i can't say that LOL :-) I appreciate the help. I've included the Hijackthis Log below.

Thanks in advance.

Don
