    Your link is an empty page in IE 10.

    This is the source code:

    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
    <HTML><HEAD>
    <META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"></HEAD>
    <BODY></BODY></HTML>
    Create a fresh drive image before making system changes, in case you need to start over!

    You might try another scan for rootkits by MalwareBytes. It is beta but I have used many times on infected computers and it has found nasties that others missed. My favorite expression for infected machines: "There is no one program that does it all".

    Rich thank you for the suggestion. Have run malwarebytes antirootkit with no results, the pest is still their.
    Also ran CCleaner which was suggested in Fred Langa past articles in the Windows Secret Newletter

    Tried to run MS Fixit but doesn't appear to work with Win8.1

    Here's another one.

    The Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool is an anti-malware utility that checks computers running Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP*, Windows 2000, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Server 2003 for infections by specific, prevalent malicious software—including Blaster, Sasser, and Mydoom—and helps remove malware and any other infections found.

    When the detection and malware removal process is complete, the tool displays a report describing the outcome, including which, if any, malware was detected and removed.

    Looks like it has quite a bit of baggage with it to also uninstall http://malwaretips.com/blogs/rvzr-a-...-net-sd-virus/

    It's most likely to be some fragment of a PUP or adware app that frequently has no actual uninstaller.

    AdwCleaner 3.2.0.8 Download
    the above has proven useful to me in like circumstances.
