Unable to delete all adware

I have run my adware program in safe mode and regular mode multiple times...and even purchased an additional registry cleaner....but I am unable to delete the following:

 

It comes out as "abetterinternet.nail" and another item is "windows"

 

The scan log shows....

Value : Shell

Data : explorer.exe, c:\windows\system32\kisvb.exe

Hey... this is a case of the SHELL value in Winlogon key being comprimised...

 

it should only have "explorer.exe" in the Shell value, unless you have explicity placed that value in yourself for some sort of other purpose....

 

are you comfortable with the registry? if you are, then you could edit that entry removing the ", c:\windows\system32\kisvb.exe", and leaving explorer.exe
