Hello Wise Wizards of Bleeping Computer:
I'm back for what seems to be an annual infection of one of the kids computers. This time it is (I think) the Hiloti virus. Tried run Malwarebytes and it said it found and removed stuff but it comes back when I re-start. A windows defender alert window popped up and I don't know if it is real or fake. It looked real and so I ran it and tried to remove it via the Windows Defender tool but honestly it seems to have made things worse. Constant popups that tell me legit programs are viruses or are infected and barrages of alerts asking me to run some security service. Sounds fake to me. I did the prep work mentioned and have a DDS log and gmer log attached. I ran the gmer and DDS and defogger by d/loading onto a flash drive and then running form the flash drive. I'm posting using the home computer rather than the infected laptop. So there may be a lag because I will be d'loading things onto a flash drive plugging in the flash to the infected laptop (which is in safe mode). The laptop is a tablet made byy acer running windows 7 home premium edition. Thanks in advance for the assistance.

I went to other portions of this board and tried a few things. It seems to have worked so you can consider this closed. I'll repost with a new topic if things come back. Basically, I restored the system to a month earlier date. Updated all the anti virus software. Ran malware and the AVG scans and things are working now. But if there is a return I will repost.
