It still doesn't work guys, if you have any other suggestions feel free, but I'm beginning to think it's the files themselves.

hmm, do you still get the error after renewing the file association, or do you get a differant error, or no error at all?

let that continue and see if it finds anything, or have you already tried that?

Well, my troubleshooting doesn't work, so I've assumed this doesn't work either, because it never finds anything.

Decertilation I have read your posted logs; that is a bunch of junk.
If it was my computer I would run AdwCleaner again and remove all that junk.
I suggest also doing a complete updated scan with your anti virus and then I would do this if it was my computer.

Free Virus Scan | Online Virus Scanner from ESET

Trying to fix a computer with problems like you are having must start with a clean (no infections or PUP's) computer.
