Cannot get rid of Vundo & Adware

Recommended Posts

Malwarebytes isn't finding anything anymore. Avira AntiVirus (free version) and McAfee find Vundo and Adware and tries to remove them but they keep coming back. A couple of days ago the mbam.exe file was being deleted but I had it emailed to me. So far it is not being deleted anymore. Thanks for any help.

Here are the logs.
