Hello, 

 

Your description matches that of sophisticated infection becoming increasingly common. I would suggest creating a new topic in the Malware Removal Logs section, where more advanced tools capable of detecting this infection are permitted. 

 

Please post back here with a link to your new topic. 

 

Thank you.
