    Let's test if adaware successfully targets and deletes it :

    Download and run it from here :

    Install by double-clicking on the downloaded file.
    After installing but before running, update Ad-aware by using its Globe icon.
    After updating, shutdown and restart Ad-aware.
    Ad-aware is ready to scan and clean your system following these steps:
    Under Ad-aware 6 > Settings (Gear at the top) > Tweaks > Scanning Engine:
    "Unload recognized processes during scanning."
    Under Ad-aware 6 > Settings (Gear at the top) > Tweaks > Cleaning Engine:
    "Let Windows remove files in use after reboot."
    Press "Scan Now"
    Check option "Use Custom scanning options"
    Check option "Activate In-Depth Scan"
    Press "Select drives\folders to scan"
    Select the active partition which is usually C:
    Press "Next" to let Ad-aware scan your drives...
    If it finds "bad" files and registry keys, press "Next" again
    Right-click in that pane and choose "select all"
    Press "next"
    When it asks to remove all checked items, Press "OK"

    After doing so update windows and IE at windowsupdate.com and get all essential updates

    Keep us posted
