You apparently ran into something this program could not counter. Download and install malwarebytes (free version) and run it. It will usually pick up on things most antivirus programs can miss, or not be able to remove. I use it now for back up scanning and for helping people who have been lax with updating their AV programs.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

You must install, update and then run the program to scan your computer. It is not sufficient to install the program only. You must update it, the malware definitions first, and then run a thorough scan.

If all else fails, read instructions.
