Virus Cloud-Front not being picked up Free v3.3


Recommended Posts

This virus cloud front .net has taken control of my Windows 7 Professional. I can't find the key-logging progs either so I can't remove them. A persistent virus that immediately worms through the windows system32. Using: Advanced SystemCare v8.3 Free / IObit Malware Fighter 3.3 Free / Smart Defrag 4 / I had Driver Booster 2 days ago, updated the drivers, rebooted, the program disappeared / In the past I have tried Comodo & many others none of them are successfully removing/ Advanced SystemCare has helped me the best, However, IObit Malware Fighter 3.3 Free & Advanced SystemCare 8.3 Free -Both are not finding or recognizing this Virus, so therefore it cannot be removed. problematic Issues relating to this virus: redirects to false sites, potential computer system takeover and everything that goes w/that. I have had numerous routers all properly secured. I have purchased brand new laptop & desktop, as soon as I get on Internet, the comp heats up, fans spins, loud noise similar to an installation, and the famous "Waiting for cloudfront .net" notification appears. I would appreciate Any suggestions . Thanks
