Congratulations you are clean! :)
Well done for sticking with me ! are your issues resolved?

Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:

Create a new System Restore Point
This is a good time to clear your existing system restore points and establish a new clean restore point:
Turn off System Restore-Vista
  • Click the Vista/Start icon.
  • Right Click >> Computer
  • Click Properties.
  • Click the System Protection tab.
  • Uncheck All drives
  • Click "Turn Off System Restore" at the prompt then click "Apply".
  • Restart your computer.
Turn ON System Restore-Vista
  • Click the Vista/Start icon
  • Right Click >> Computer
  • Click Properties.
  • Click the System Protection tab.
  • Checkmark All drives that were selected previously then click "Apply".
Here are some free programs I recommend that could help you improve your computer's security.
(Vista users must ensure that any programs are Vista compatible BEFORE installing)

Spybot Search and Destroy 1.5.2
Download it from here. Just choose a mirror and off you go.
Find here the tutorial on how to use Spybot properly here
Find here changes from older version 1.4 here

Install Spyware Guard
Download it from here
Find here the tutorial on how to use Spyware Guard here

Install SpyWare Blaster
Download it from here
Find here the tutorial on how to use Spyware Blaster here

Install WinPatrol
Download it from here
Here you can find information about how WinPatrol works here

Install FireTrust SiteHound
You can find information and download it from here

Install MVPS Hosts File from here
The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your computer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer.
Find Tutorial here : http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm

Update your Antivirus programs and other security products regularly to avoid new threats that could infect your system.
You can use one of these sites to check if any updates are needed for your pc.
Secunia Software Inspector
F-secure Health Check

Visit Microsoft often to get the latest updates for your computer.
http://www.update.microsoft.com

Please check out Tony Klein's article "How did I get infected in the first place?"

Read some information here how to prevent Malware.

Happy safe surfing!

Actually I'm still getting the popups. I had a scan and and the Malware Bytes program detected a malware trace in my system32 folder under drivers called core.cache.dsk. I've tried to remove it with some programs and manually but it won't let me. Any suggestions?

  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear use arrow up to highlight

  • For additional help in booting into Safe Mode, see the following site:HERE

Right click start, In the drop down menu click "Explore" Then navigate to each file\ folder in the left hand pane, which will reveal its content in the right hand pane, highlight file or folder right click and Delete, if present:

I believe I unchecked all shields. I looked and didn't find an option that said "uncheck homepage shield" and "automaticly restore default without notification". Maybe because I have the a new version? I also deleted the core.cache.dsk folder in safe mode and it was back when I rebooted normally.

Ok, time to get tough with it.

Download the Killbox.
Unzip it to the desktop

Double-click Killbox.exe to run it.

Select "Delete on Reboot".
Place the following line (complete path) in bold in the "Full Path of File to Delete" box in Killbox:
C:\Windows\System32\drivers\core.cache.dsk
Put a mark next to "Delete on Reboot"
Click the red-and-white "Delete File" button. Click "Yes" at the Delete on Reboot prompt. Click "No" at the Pending Operations prompt.
If your computer does not restart automatically, please restart it manually.


Then post a malwarebytes log and HJT log

It wouldn't let me click No at the pending operations prompt. It just says PendingFileRenameOperations Registry Data has been Removed by External Process. Then I can hit ok and I reboot and the file is still there.

You may still have hiddenfile\folders revealed so you can miss that step also spysweeper may still be disabled.

To Disable SpySweeper:

Open it click >Options over to the left then >program options >Uncheck
load at windows startup

Over to the left click
shields
and uncheck all there.
Uncheck
home page shield
.
Uncheck 'automaticly restore default without notifiction


Please disable Windows Defender Real Time Protection as it may interfere with the fix.
To disable Windows Defender:
  • Open Windows Defender
  • Click Tools
  • Click General Settings
  • Scroll down to Real Time Protection Options
  • Uncheck Turn on Real Time Protection (recommended)
  • Click Save
  • Close Windows Defender
  • Reboot your machine for the changes to take effect.
Once your log is clean you can re-enable Windows Defender Real Time Protection.


We need to reveal system folders
  • Close all programs so that you are at your desktop.

  • Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options

  • Press the Apply and then the ok button and shut down my computer
  • Now your computer is configured to show all hidden files.
  • For you and the tools to be able to see appropriate files we need to Show Hidden Files


Double-click Killbox.exe to run it.

Select "Delete on Reboot".
Place the following line (complete path) in bold in the "Full Path of File to Delete" box in Killbox:
C:\Windows\System32\drivers\core.cache.dsk
Put a mark next to "Delete on Reboot"
Click the red-and-white "Delete File" button. Click "Yes" at the Delete on Reboot prompt. Click "No" at the Pending Operations prompt.
If your computer does not restart automatically, please restart it manually.
If you receive a message such as: "Component 'MsComCtl.ocx' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid." when trying to run TheKillbox, click here to download and run missingfilesetup.exe. Then try TheKillbox again.

See how we go!

I've disabled everything you told me to and revealed hidden files. However, it still says "PendingFileRenameOperations Registry Data has been Removed by External Process!" when I try to delete the file on Killbox.
