Try the following:

Please download TDSSKiller

Save it to the Desktop.

Now, double-click* on TDSSKiller.exe to run the program.

Click the 'Start Scan' button.

Do not use the computer during the scan

If the scan completes with nothing found, click 'Close' to exit.

When the scan finishes it displays a Scan results screen stating whether or not an infection was found on your computer.

To remove the infection, click on the Continue button.

If it does not say Cure on the results screen, leave it at the default action of Skip, and press the 'Continue' button.

Do not change to 'Delete' or 'Quarantine' as it may delete infected files that are required for Windows to operate properly.

Reboot to finish the cleaning process.

A log file named TDSSKiller_version_date_time_log.txt (i.e. TDSSKiller. is created and saved to the root directory (usually Local Disk C:).

Now, re-start your computer.
Tap the F8 key before Windows starts, to bring up the Windows Advanced Options menu

Use the arrow keys to select Safe Mode with Networking

In Safe Mode with Networking, download iExplore.exe, which is a renamed copy of RKill:

Without a reboot, download Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware (black button with green and white icon)

Save to the Desktop:

Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.

TDSSKiller will work, however the program only removes the infected files, and doesn't clean them. That means some programs which originally used those files might have to be reinstalled.

Some infected programs will only be reported as suspicious, but in my experience, they all should be removed.
