ESET should give you the option to remove this malware - let it do that. Then reboot, and scan using this:

Windows Defender Offline

Post back if you need more help.

try downloading and installing and doing a complete scan of malwarebytes at

also you can download and install Superantispyware at and do a full scan
Hopefully one or both will get rid of it
