Oh why...

The customer is sad they fell for the hype. It has taken me several hrs. to get to a low point, but it persists not to be taken down. I'll check back with results. I've gotten down to 2-process that re hatch, dang. -----Willy Happy

What worked for me

I used most of the major AV and/or trojan removal tools, but none seemed to fix the final last two items. Over and over again, it just wouldn't go. Booting in safe mode and re-using the tools got it all stopped at least, then I used REVO Uninstaller. It checked the registry, etc. and boy did it take some time on this rather fast PC. the whole idea being after many hrs. of time and effort, its gone. The tools,were repeatedly used are:

1)HiJac this
2)Rogue Killer
3)Rogue Remover
5)Revo Uninstaller
6)Avast AV

*** all of the above were free versions ***

BEWARE: That some so-called removers refer back to the co. that offers removal tools for CyberDefender is from the same co.. Considering all the hassle none of those were used as a precaution.

I suggest this be posted or be part of the sticky, because all advise found was rather weak.
