Specs: Windows 7
Its a hijacker of browzers and its very annoying. Not sure how dangerous it is. I have it on more than one computer I am not sure how I got it. I have tried Malwarebytes and a few others nothing seems to remove it.

Did you try Malwarebytes while in Safe Mode? Safe Mode limits the system to essentials only so the probability that the virus' built in protection will be inactive so it will be more easily removed. If Malwarebytes does remove it there, post the log, update your antivirus protection, and run that also. Then run Malwarebytes again, all while still in Safe Mode. Post more results for more advice. Next time, post a problem like this under the 'Security and Virus' forum.

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

Run both of these, in this order.

1: Run AdwCleaner

Tutorial
http://general-changelog-team.fr/en...
Close all open programs and internet browsers.
Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
Click on Clean.
Confirm each time with Ok.
Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
Please Copy & Paste the contents of that logfile with your next answer.
You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.
AdwCleaner is a program that searches for and deletes Adware, Toolbars, Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUP), and browser Hijackers from your computer. By using AdwCleaner you can easily remove many of these types of programs for a better user experience on your computer and while browsing the web.
The types of programs that AdwCleaner targets are typically bundled with free programs that you download from the web. In many cases when you download and install a program, the install will state that these programs will be installed along with the program you downloaded. Unless you perform a Custom install, these unwanted programs will automatically be installed on your computer leaving you with extra browser toolbars, adware, and other unwanted programs. AdwCleaner is designed to search for and remove these types of programs.
AdwCleaner Usage Instructions:
Using AdwCleaner is very simple. Simply download the program and run it. You will then be presented with a screen that contains a Search and Delete button. The Search button will cause AdwCleaner to search your computer for unwanted programs and then display a log showing the various files, folders, and registry entries used by these programs.
To delete these unwanted programs simply click on the Delete button, which will cause AdwCleaner to reboot your computer and remove the files and registry entries associated with the various adware that you are removing. On reboot, AdwCleaner will display a log showing the files, folders, and registry entries that were removed.
Please note that Antivir Webguard uses ASK Toolbar as part of its web security. If you remove ASK by using Adwcleaner, Antivir Webguard will no longer work properly. Therefore, if you use this program please use the instructions below to access the options screen where you should enable /DisableAskDetections before using AdwCleaner.
AdwCleaner also contains some advanced options that disable certain detections. To access these options, you can click on the question mark (?) in the upper left corner of the program and then click on Options. You will then be presented with a dialog where you can disable various detections. These options are described below:
/DisableAskDetection - This option disables Ask Toolbar detection.
/DisableIEDetection - This option disables Internet Explorer specific detections.
/DisableFFDetection - This option disables Firefox specific detections.
/DisableChromeDetection - This option disables detections for Chrome & Chromium based browsers.
/DisableOperaDetection - This option disables Opera specific detections.
/DisableProxyDetection - This option disables Internet Proxy detections. Windows XP/Vista/7/8 32-bit program. May not work on 64-bit operating systems.

✔ Best Answer
Trovi provides uninstall instructions:

You might give that a try. Of course it won't hurt to run the other scans to see if you've picked up any other crap.
