Hitman Pro 3 - SurfRight
Download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.51.2 -
Download SuperAntiSpyware 5.0.1134 -

Try Malwarebyre antimalware first. Install it then update it and do a quick scan after the scan completes click ok and show results. Be sure everything is selected then click remove selected. post the log here then reboot.

Hitman does not need to be installed but it will need internet connectivity to scan the computer. Just run the downloaded file and scan.
