The malware I believe is still on my computer is that of the picture below, found on one of the removal helps. I'm not sure what is going on, I've done everything I usually do and the virus seems to remain present. I've ran Malware Bytes, and Combofix, still it seems to be present. I've even tried running it in safe-mode when I used the removal tools. Though it has clean the bulk of the virus it still seems to be there. I still get the "Windows is unprotected" balloon, even when I have the actual security center set to let me monitor my own virus protection. When searching the web I am still directed to virus/malware sites when trying to access these boards or any other virus removal help sites. Combofix says the same exact same thing each time I run it, and Malware Bytes finds the same viruses. How exactly is these top notch virus removal tools not removing the actual malware?

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at step 6.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Since you have run ComboFix, please include the ComboFix log in the new topic. Please be sure to include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to try to resolve them.

If you cannot produce any of the other logs, then please create the new topic anyway, include the information that you were unable to produce the other logs and why and include the ComboFix log along with a description of your computer issues.
