I've tried just about everything that I can try to get this nasty beast out of my system and it absolutely refuses to leave. I've scanned with Beijing Rising Antivirus, Malwarebytes, AdAware (latest version), and Spybot SD, and all of them said my system was clean, yet every time I go online, within a few minutes I'm directed to a site I've never even heard of. I have a scan log from HijackThis and in the scan there is a very suspicious file which is a toolbar with no file and no name, but I don't want to mess with it until I know for sure as it could just be a hidden Windows file that refuses to name itself. I've tried to add the log file, but then it tells me Internet Explorer can't display the webpage so should I just add it through the 'Browse' option?

Download this file and save it to your desktop:


Double-click the file to run it. A command window will open briefly. Then run a quick scan with Malwarebytes. Post the Malwarebytes log.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
