Hi Tim, welcome to the Forum.

Have a look at this Microsoft website. There are links to click on if you need extra instructions on doing some of the repair.

Sync.exe - Microsoft Community

The quote below is from the MS website referred to above. It does help explain what the OP has on his computer.

"sync.exe is a process belonging to the AdShooter.SearchForIt advertising program by Search For It Inc. This process monitors your browsing habits and distributes the data back to the author's servers for analysis. This also prompts advertising popups. This process is a security risk and should be removed from your system.
Non-system processes like sync.exe originate from software you installed on your system."
