So it seems the only fix for this is to completely recover the system with a disk(forgot the name.) But I don't have a working cd rom drive for the disk...

How can I go about deleting this safely and not screw anything up? I've only seen COMBOFIX and I'm rather scared to even touch it even with approval of the techies here, help!

Hi wes225 -
What program are you using as an Antivirus - Also do you have Malwarebytes or SUPERAntiSpyware installed -
Run your A/V and then run Malwarebytes if you can -
Thank You -
EDIT - Never use Combofix unless directed by an expert advisor - You can cause damage to your system if not used in the correct manner -
The program is constantly being updated or altered to suit modern needs -
