I have executed Malwarebytes, Rill, Combofix and this sucker keeps popping up. I'm out of options. Over to the experts! Windows 7 Professional.

That is one of the newer variants of malware.
Detailed removal instructions here:

Note that "Safe Mode with Networking" will be required when you do this.
The Proxy Settings can also be handled automatically if you want to use "RogueKiller" instead of "Rkill".

I've already followed those instructions from bleeping computer. Problem is malwarebytes shuts down during the scan and can't be restarted again unless it's re-installed.

Try saving Malwarebytes with a different name BEFORE downloading it (in IE, use the 'Save As" function).

Also substitute RogueKiller for Rkill - it has additional Menu Options that will give you additional tools for cleaning this up.
