I can't see how you missed the pop-up when posting HJT is pretty big & bold. The HJT results will probably get pulled from here.
For a solution right now you could try a full scan with malwarebytes and fix all it finds. If that doesn't clear up the problem, you can also try tdss killer:
It will remove an unwanted rootkit if found.
