HP, 64-bit rebuilt tower with 850-gig HD and 4 Meg RAM, running Windows 7. Every time lately that I bring up a page, some words such as lands are highlighted, example landslands. (I am even seeing these duplicated words here in the forums!) If I hover my mouse over the duplicated words, somthing comes up that appears to be an ad, e.g., Land's End or some real estate agency in California. (I live in Ohio! LOL) Sometimes just the logo of the TornTV comes up, which reads Click to continue > by Torntv V9.0. I looked in the virus removal section and I don't see anything about TornTV.
I Googled TornTV and it turns out it is in fact malware -- which is untouched by Malwarebytes, M$ Security Essentials, or adwcleaner. A look at the Registry editor, HKEY_LOCAL_Machine... Windows... Current Version... Run reveals the attached information.
So my question is, do all these "belong?" If not, do I remove the values Persistence and picon, those being the ones I'm in doubt about? TIA; you folks are always a great help!
