If anyone gets infected with this and needs help let me know. It is a pain in the @$$ but only takes a minute to clean after you get it figured out.

Thats a new one to me. Basically all I do mostly now is virus removal for returning/former customers since I shut my store down. If I see this I'll be in touch for sure!

Well just a general rule when dealing with mal-ware spy-ware ad-ware and the like, most virus writers are lazy. This particular one blocks the installs of malwarebytes, combofix, and hijack this, but if you change the name of the install file to something different(even if only by one letter) the programs will install fine. So they are only blocking by name. then you can do your usual cleanup. Same goes for the install of chrome if you need a good browser to get around the net while infected.
