I believe you still have malwares. Go to safe mode and run malwarebytes again. It's best to run malwarebytes on safe mode. Sometimes malwarebytes will not detect everything. Try running free online scan and removal like onecare, go to this link http://onecare.live.com/site/en-us/default.htm
This is a virus,Open the C:windows/system32/config and delete the Win.exe and then run a full virus scan with something like Spybot search and destroy and get ride of the remaining parts of the virus,Then use registry cleaner such a Ccleaner
Do to your desktop, right click 'Personalize'. Then choose 'Deskptop Baground", click Browse button next to the location, choose the picture you want to use as baground, then click 'Open', now double click on the new picture in the windows and click OK.
configure your visual settings in windows classic mode including themes and wallpapers dont use side barsor any other visual effects in the run prompt type services.msc or msconfig and disable background indexing services
1) Launch services.msc from a run command 2) Find the SLUNotify service & stop it 3) Find the Software Licensing service & stop it (it may say that ReadyBoost needs that service to run; stop it anyway) 4) Restart both services, starting with Software Licensing
I just cleaned up a similar situation this weekend. Try this. Go into the control panel and create a new user id. Log off of your current user id and use the new one you created. See if the tabs are still there. If they are the virus trashed your desktop and you should create a new one.
Before you do that try scanning for viruses with the new desktop you just created. It might be that the virus exists on your old desktop and it won't go away because it is running. Checking for viruses using the new desktop can get rid of the problem.
