Hello,

I am afraid that your disks will not help.

However, we can help you remove the trojans.

Please delete the Malwarebyte application you already have.

Many Trojans are self-protective and will not allow for antimalware to do their job, therefore you must outwit them.

After removing your present copy of Malwarebyte (it may have been corrupted by the trojan)

Redownload Malwarebyte to your desktop and rename it explorer.exe. Please update and run a FULL system scan. That should do the trick.

Now, if you believe that a trojan are still present after Malwarebyte, some processes will need to be terminated. To tell you which ones, I will require from you a Hyjackthis log.

Please download and run Hyjackthis, from the main page request a scan and save a log. Once the scan is complete, the log will open. Please copy the log and paste here.

Here is the link to Hyjackthis:
