Hello, I have tried Spybot and Ad-aware following the advice on start page as per basic removal, but this thing has persisted in staying in my system. I've deleted it countless times and it keeps cloning itself everytime I load a new site. It is called Aurora from what kept popping up advertising.

If there is anything else I can provide you guys to help rectify this problem please let me know.

Kept deleting these and they remake themselves.

After the installation, a free 14-day test version containing all the extensions of the plus-version will be activated. At the end of the test phase, the extensions of the plus version are deactivated and the freeware version can be used unlimited times. The purchased license code of the plus version can be entered at any time.
Ewido will auto-udate

Reboot into Safe Mode: please see here if you are not sure how to do this.

Run a full scan with ewido save the log when the scan has finnished.

Clear out the files in the Prefetch folder. Go to start> run> type into the box Prefetch and delete all the files in that folder.

Clean out temporary and TIF files. Go to Start > Run and type in the box: cleanmgr. Let it scan your system for files to remove. Make sure all are checked and then press *ok* to remove:

Please go offline, close all browsers and any open Windows, making sure that only HijackThis is open. Scan and when it finishes, put an X in the boxes, only next to these following items:
