    You need to download these programs and then run in the order listed below

    ATF Cleaner by Atribune.- http://www.atribune.org/index.php?option=com_conte...

    Fix Policies - Http://downloads.malwareremoval.com/BillCastner/fixpolicies.exe

    Malwarebytes - http://malwarebytes.gt500.org/mbam-setup.exe

    ComboFix - http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBS/ComboFix...

    Run ATF cleaner program, select the All option and then click the Empty Selected button,

    when finished, run the Fix Policies,

    unzip and then run the fix_policies.cmd by clicking it,

    a black box will appear and when it closes it is finished.

    Run the Malwarebytes setup, install and then run the full option,

    if it prompts you to reboot to remove files then do it.

    Lastly run combofix,

    it is important you disable all AntiVirus and Anti Spyware programs before running this, some seem to detect this as a virus and will restrict it, it is not a virus.

    Do not mouse click when this is running, with some set ups this will stall the program.

    When it has finished reboot and hopefully you have your PC back under your full control and Virus free.

    If you have a Anti Virus program run a full system scan now.

    If you don't then try this one AVG - http://www.avg.com/download-trial or the free edition at

    AVG FREE - http://free.avg.com/ww.download-avg-anti-virus-fre...
