PUP.Optional in Registry Key will not go away

I have found on my husbands laptop a malware that is very persistant at staying on his computer even thou I have run several Malware removals....both in normal mode and in safe mode.....MalwarbytesAnti-Malware finds it...deletes it but it comes back.....I also downloaded in safe mode and tried SuperAntimalware but that does not find anything in registry.....Spybot search and destory finds 1 but it does not show up when you click on show details...nothing shows up! So why can I not get rid of it.......It says its in Registry Key...HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Ext\Stats\{9D717F81-9148-4F12-8568-69135F087DB0} (PUP.Optional.Bandoo.A)
