risingflight,

If you opt to run the programs suggested, there is still a possibility for remnants to remain in the system. To see whatever is left, and remove it, please use the tool that follows...

Zoek:
Download > Download zoek.exe version 5.0.0.0
Click: Download Zoek.exe version 5.0.0.0 (Do not click .zip or .rar)

When the download shows, and you get the option to save, please do so to the Desktop.
Right-click zoek.exe and select: Run as Administrator (Give it a few seconds to appear.)

If your AntiVirus warns you about the program, either allow Zoek to run, or temporarily disable your AV program.
Info on how to disable your security applications > How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs - Security Mini-Guides

Next, copy and then paste the entire script inside the code box below to the input field of Zoek:

Code:
createsrpoint; 
process; 
filesrcm; 
startupall; 
installedprogs;
installer-list; 
uninstall-list;
hijackthis; 
firefoxlook; 
chromelook;  
srinfo; 
DIR /S /A:L "%systemdrive%\*">>"%temp%\log.txt";b
Now...

Close any open windows.

Click the Run script button and wait. It takes a few minutes to run all the script.

When finished, the zoek-results.log is opened in Notepad.
If a reboot is needed the log is opened after the reboot.

The log is also found on the systemdrive, normally C:\

Please post the zoek-results.log in your reply.
