Try changing the .exe esxtenion on MBAM to .com. I haven't come across this iteration before. Have you tried removing the startup entries using HJT?

Download, install, and run
Malwarebytes (MBAM) (http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php)

It will definitely repair this for you...BUT...

When downloading, save to your "Desktop" and use the "Save As" function (Internet Explorer) to rename the file.
The instructions are included right in that link.

When finished with MBAM, post the log that is generated and let us look at it for you.
