I was attempting to convert an Audacity file to an mp3. It directed me to a remote site stating that I needed an add on. I did and that's when the issues started.

Once the issues started, I noticed three new programs, Scorpian Saver, Kinksicle, and Sendori. I removed all three. I'm assuming they're probably still there?

Paul if you run Revo it digs a little deeper inti the reg so winkling the thing out if you like go to regedit don't use admin just yet and go to those HKEYs and open out the Software look for Makisoft for the Sendori see this scorpion saver - Microsoft Community for Scorpian Saver but check down both Software lists anyway the other I can out find any reference to but do the same as for Scorpian Saver look for entries with that as that first reference .

Might be interesting to know how exactly you were directed to this add-on download and what site you downloaded from so others might be warned about the malicious site.

In Audacity, when you attempt to export an Audacity project as an mp3, you get a message stating that Audacity cannot convert to an mp3 unless you download an add on. The link to the site was included in the message.

If you cleaned/deleted everything that AdwCleaner found, then it cleaned the registry too.
