Try the scans in Safe Mode with Networking. Sounds like you're still infected pretty good. If you can't download or update Avast in Safe it from a working computer and save it to a jump drive or cd. Then install it in safe mode. Also download and install malwarebytes from here and run it.

Consider a re-load of the OS. It is the only way to be sure.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
