update again. i install the malwarebytes, and it will not open. not matter how i tr to run it, it wont open. but if i click the file for the uninstall, which is in the same folder as the exe it runs and uninstalls it. i just d/l and installed trojan remover and it ran fine. it didn't find anything but it still ran.
