    sounds like you may have been infected by a "root kit", malwarebytes has a root kit remover also... mbar.exe is the installer, you should be able to get it from the "More Tools" tab of the Malwarebytes application.
    if that doesn't take care of the problem I suggest Rogue Killer as the next course of action, it's what I had to use when malwarebytes was insufficient to remove a stubborn problem.

    brief research indicates this may be caused by malware, the solution posted in the research was to run Malwarebytes anti-malware, there is a free version that is handy for cleaning and a premium version for proactive protection ( I had to install this version on my mothers computer).

    heh, he said "sheet".

    they may not let you down grade the software either, you won't know till you try uninstalling and then trying to install the version you purchased.
    at that point you may be screwed.
    I can't really fault Adobe on this, they provide support and version updates...
    in order to keep generating revenue they have to go to annual fee structure.
    I choose not to support that type of structure by using other software that has most of the functionality at a sixth of the cost and it does what I need it to do.
    Antivirus software used to be a buy it and get support for life, a few years ago they went to annual fees per machine install, that is when I researched a less expensive option.

    I blame the people using apple hardware... 
    (just kidding, if it wasn't for apple, the other platforms wouldn't be so popular)

    I know this will be a can of worms and I don't work for any software company...but...
    The software company sold you a license to "legally" use their software for a specified amount of time (when you "bought into the cloud").
    In previous years a software license could be purchased without annual fees for support or updates, that is no longer true due to the cost of software updates but in the past we didn't have as many hackers as we seem to have now that can exploit any little software loophole.
    I'm not defending software companies, just trying to shine some light on a misconception.
    You do not own any software that you think you have just purchased, you have paid for the right to use it per the EULA (End User Licensing Agreement).

    based on my own experience, it seems if you get photoshop versions newer than 4 or 5 that you get mired in the photoshop cloud tar pit... that is one of the reasons I haven't tried to set that up for my wife who uses InDesign for newsletter creation.
    Anyone that has a business need for photoshop and can get their company to pay for it is lucky, me...I will stick with paintshop pro at a tenth of the cost of photoshop.

    nicely finished.
    one suggestion for the next one, drill out the air cleaner inlet, similar to drilling out the tailpipes...it's an easy detail to include.

    yeah, pretty soon all a haxor will need to do will be stand next to your brand new "net-enabled" car and purchase a new entertainment system for his home using your car charge account (which you didn't know you had)...or just crash all airport computers...

    fixed it by "re-applying" the default theme.

    that engine had a 1 bbl autolite carb, just about any stromberg with a square base would be hard to tell the difference at this scale.
    just rob a carb or two from any 3 or 6 carb intake set and you should be good to go.

    today, the icons on the main forum page to the left of the section headings have turned to the (broken) "not found" symbol, not really a problem for me but it's a negative change that wasn't there yesterday.
    I'm using the latest flavor of FIrefox on win8.1
