Hi kevin, I think you'll want to head over to the Malware forum and check out the pinned articles at the top. You might want to post some logs based on what you read there, but be patient, the malware team is flooded with requests right now - you shouldn't expect to hear back for a few days.

I will request that a Moderator move this topic to the Am I Infected forum where a Malware Removal Team member will assist in cleaning your machine.

Please be patient, they have a large number of topics to work with.

If you haven't had a response in the next day or so, send me a PM to let me know.
