Program finds hijack files, deletes, but they're back after reboot

Recommended Posts

The subject line sums it up. After I run the program, it finds three malicious files. I have them deleted, then reboot, but when I'm back in a browser, I still get hijacked whenever I click any links from a search page (google, bing, etc.). Am I doing something wrong? I don't know if it's helpful, but I am including a log from my last scan:
