Read HERE, but don't perform it.
You are infecting with "Rootkit", I think.
I strongly recommend that you solve this problem with an expert.

This describes your infection:

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.
