I saw a couple other people mention this a few threads ago in response to the azurewebsites,com situation. I ran AdwareCleaner on my laptop (new Dell Inspiron 13 7000 Starlord) and when it was finished scanning, it said there were 6 items detected (yet only 3 on the list below that notification, and so, like any normal person, I clicked to remove them. This prompted a "do you want to exit out of your things" message, so I agreed, and BAM! Blue Screen of : ( popped up on my screen. Restarted the computer, and the items were still not removed after a second scan. How am I to remove these pesky adware things (If they are not false positives?)

Ok! I am doing that now and it did not even prompt anything to press "cancel" for. (update: the second boot-up after it fixed everything prompted it, so I canceled that update) It says there are 4 elements that need to be removed; Let's hope it does not boot me into the great blue yonder in a moment!

UPDATE: It did not boot me, and it prompted to restart the system, which I did. I think I am in the clear now!

Update update: It is completely clean now! Thank you so much for your assistance!

Well, nonetheless, I did a rootkit scanner with y'all's software and it removed them. My question is, will they ever stay away, or will I have to scan my laptop every week or so to ensure it stays unaffected?

You should at least use a proactive protection software which would protect you from Ransomware, Exploits, and other threats, and not only do a scan on-demand.
