Hello MHC,

I noticed you have Norton Anti-virus, have you run it if not go ahead and run it and let me know what it finds.

Also go to add/remove programs and uninstall AWS or anything to do with weatherbug this is adware.

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here or Here

Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.
The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.(See Extra Note)
The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
Copy&Paste the entire report in your next reply.

Extra Note:
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove,you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts,click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process,if asked to restart the computer,please do so immediatly.

Download WinPFind2.exe to your Desktop and double-click on it to extract the files. It will create a folder named WinPFind2 on your desktop.

Open the folder and double-click on winpfind2.exe to start the program.
Click on the Services tab.
From the two drop down boxes next to Filter list:, on the left one choose List all type of services and on the right one choose List all services.

to select them.
Under File Options click Select All
Under Other Options put a check to both Show All boxes
Please maximize the window in order to be able to view the Status Bar where you can see the progress of the scan.
Now click the Run All Scans button on the toolbar.
When the scans are complete click the Simple Report button in the lower right-hand corner to create a report file. Notepad will open with the report file loaded in it.
Click the Format menu and make sure that Wordwrap is not checked. If it is, click on it to uncheck it and then please post that report into this topic. After posting please check if the whole report fit into the post. If it did fit, it should say <End of Report> at the end. If not, please post the section that was cut off in a second post.

Please download Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) and save it to your Desktop.
Close all other windows before proceeding.
Double-click on dss.exe and follow the prompts.
