Also am I not to bother to try with downloading the TFC again as you previously asked?
Were you able to run the file named flush.bat?

I'll let Jacee answer your question about TFC.

UsernameIssues video helped me to run the Temp cleaner which I did but the one persistant PUP still came back when I ran before I deleted it with Malwarebytes I opened up and looked in the registry files as it doesn't seem to show up when I delete it via Malwarebytes first and hey presto it was I deleted it manually myself then also carried out the final pressing the delete button on the Malwarebytes (just incase) and so far it has not as yet come back.....So I will keep running the Malwarebytes to check for it and if it comes back then I will let you know.......I have not yet run the flush.bat as its gone for now...I hope

The flush .bat file 'flushes' a bad/dirty DNS cache and restores Microsoft's Hosts file. :)

Can you please try to download and run AdwCleaner again? I would like to see the logs.

download AdwCleaner by Xplode and save to your Desktop. If you can't get it to download correctly from Bleeping Computer, then go to the Author's site and download it
  • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
    Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • AdwCleaner will patient as the scan may take some time to complete.
  • After the scan has finished, click on the Report button...a logfile (AdwCleaner[R0].txt) will open in Notepad for review.
  • The contents of the log file may be confusing. Unless you see a program name that you know should not be removed, don't worry about it. If you see an entry you want to keep, let me know about it.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that logfile in your next reply.
  • A copy of all logfiles are saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder which was created when running the tool.
Using AdwCleaner v3: Scan & Clean:

Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool again.
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • AdwCleaner will begin to scan your computer like it did before.
  • After the scan has finished...
  • This time, click on the Clean button.
  • Press OK when asked to close all programs and follow the onscreen prompts.
  • Press OK again to allow AdwCleaner to restart the computer and complete the removal process.
  • After rebooting, a logfile report (AdwCleaner[S0].txt) will open automatically.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that logfile in your next reply.
  • A copy of that logfile will also be saved in the C:\AdwCleaner folder.
