Greetings folks, 


I have been struggling with this off and on for about 45 days. Basically my browser starts redirecting to me to other sites like reimage. In response, I will go into google chrome settings and reset it. Some times it goes away and sometimes it doesn't. I have also ran adwcleaner,rkill,JRT,hitman pro,malware bytes. The problem goes away but comes back. I think ad-block was stopping them for loading.As of today, I believe I removed the virus again, but the fact it came back in the first place concerns me. Please take a look at these logs and see if anything is out of the ordinary. (See Attached)
