No idea??? Not sure what to say. Maybe click to find out, but this day and age it could be a fake. I was recommending the manual method they show. Or you could try a-squared.

I assume you have tried Add/Remove programs? cccleaner? a-squared? You mean you don't see those lines (values) in your registry? Also read the comments, plus it says Malwarebytes Anti Malware will remove it.

I wonder if if would be possible to make a livelinux kind of dvd with an antivirus and spyware remover on it and run the computer off of the disc to remove the program. Or otherwise, hook the drive up to another PC and run antivirus and spyware that way. I\

Try free SUPERantispyware. Run it in safe mode. also you might try downloading free Hijackthis program, run a scan and look for suspicious entries. But be careful using it. Using system restore is another option.

Delete your system restore points, then do your Malwarebytes SASware, or A-ASquared stuff. What probably happening is every time you uninstall, the adware writes itself in the restore, and reinstalls next start.
