These two PUPs keep coming back. I ran the scan, submitted the logs, but nothing helps. Right after I quarantine, I get a message from WinPatrol saying something like "someone is trying to change your start page to Google". Optional Spigot (in location) seems to be associated with the registry for the start page of Internet Explorer (I don't use IE) and the reimage is listed as a File, it's in the APPDATA LOCAL GOOGLE CHROME USER DATA DEFAULT PREFERENCES.

Please help, I've got a project due in two days and I'm prioritizing removing this over doing that.
