I've got two issues, I'm not sure if they're related. The first, every few clicks I make in my browser it will make a pop up. It's usually for the same few places so I know it isn't the web page generating them but something in my computer.

 

I've also noticed while working on intense projects (like animations and rendering) my audio will suddenly start playing in super distorted slow mo. Sometimes I'm not doing anything BUT playing music and the same thing happens which can last for 2-7 minutes- however if I turn off my wi-fi it instantly fixes it. This makes me think that either the virus/trojan/malware is updating itself or somehow someone is remote accessing my computer at random intervals. 

 

I've run many different programs and none of them can catch whatever it is, even in offline and in safe mode. I have used (the newest updated versions of) Malaware, Avast, Spybot Search and Destroy, crap cleaner, and combo fix. I don't know what else to do to get rid of this thing.

Hello avidlebon.. Looks like adware and even rootkits..

Having run ComboFix we need to see that log and a DDS log from this Guide in a new topic.

 

Please follow this Preparation Guide and post in a new topic.
Let me know if all went well.

Thanks for the link! I made a new guide and included both of the logs in my new post. I think everything is there that's required? http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/489803/constant-pop-ups-and-sudden-proccesing-slow-down/

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRL Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

The current wait time is 1 - 2 days and ALL logs are answered.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
