Last week I ended up with the rogue virus Smart Fortress 2012. I downloaded (in safe mode) and ran (in normal mode) Malware Bytes' Anti-Malware, and it appeared to have gotten rid of this. However, when I press Start and look at my programs, Smart Fortress 2012 still shows up, but as an empty folder. Now whenever I reboot my computer, I get the error "w3dbsmgr.exe - ordinal not found. The ordinal 1109 could not be located in the dynamic link library wsock32.dll."" My Trend Micro (Worry Free Business Advanced) now constantly shows URLs that it is blocking, and I don't even have a browser open. In 1/2 hour it stated it blocked over 100. I have run every scan I can think of and I keep coming up empty. Thoughts?

Thank you for the advice - this was the first thing I did last week. I will look deeper into the file names and registers. I have also run Advanced System Care 5 (paid version - deep scan), CCleaner, TM Rootkit Buster, TM House Call, TM FakeAV Remover, and a full Trend Micro scan.
