I am getting the Malicious website warning and need help in removing the root cause.  This problem has persisted for a few weeks and has proven stubborn.  The result is that is hogging my home network, making it difficult to use.


Some history:

In summary ran the following and in this rough order: (after removing Trend Micro)
Kaspersky TDSSkiller, RKill, MalWaresBytes anti-malware, Hitman Pro (beta version), RogueKiller,AdwCleaner, Junkware removal tool, ESET, EMSISOFT.
-  result of the above:
 Malwarebytes did not catch anything in the scan but after I put it on it starting to block several Malicious Websites (all outbound),  RogueKiller found 'Trojan Poweliks' and it deleted it.  That worked for a while (2 hours without shutdown) but then the Malicious Website warning re-appeared.  The problem came back immediately upon reboot.
-  So then I did:  Norton power eraser followed by Sophos.  Norton picked up nothing but Sophos picked up and cleaned 'TROJ/PeeacMem-A'.
-  So I then used Roquekiller to get rid of poweliks, followed by Sophos to get rid of Peeac...   and I thought I was clear.
-  But it all keeps coming back.
I noticed there are posts on this forum with similar problems and it looks like solutions were found. I would like to see if I can solve this (with help) before I wipe the drive.
