Review Jacee’s instructions to run Adwcleaner here post #7,
Ignore the title of the thread,
Instant Savings App
On the BleepingComputer site use the button that looks like this,

You can use these free tools to see if they find anything,
Manually Update them before running full scans,
Try not to use your computer while the scans are running, (one at a time of course).
See this tutorial on how to download and run Malwarebytes,
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free
Also use the Custom scan option not the Threat scan,
Please Do Not clean/ Delete or Remove Any detections before posting the scan results first before review especially Malwarebytes,
Malwarebytes | Free Anti-Malware Detection & Removal Software
SAS is safe to remove anything it finds
SUPERAntiSpyware | Remove Malware | Remove Spyware - AntiMalware, AntiSpyware, AntiAdware!
This one is the longest up to 4 hours, the others are only about 45 minutes,

Hi, with Malwarebytes i analyzed two days ago and he found only one item deleted, and one false positive: Winrar.exe.
I download Adwcleanr by Xplode, but at analysis of "shorcut infected" the scan blocked and the program crash. I try scanning in safe mode?
With Adwcleaner 5, scan complete and i cleaned and restarted the PC. I add the log.
After i scan with SuperAntispyware and he found 440 file infected!! I add also this log. So i have to eliminate everything that has found right?

For SAS, these are the only ones you should be aware of, rest are cookies:
I use WinRAR and never get a false positive for it, make sure your copy is legit and infection free.
