Ok, so I was able to start in safe mode with networking. I attempted to look for those files but had a very difficult time. Since I had networking I did a bit more online research and found this site
. It had step by step instructions, which basically boiled down to downloading Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
(it's free). I ran that program and it's gone.
I still have some issues that I'm trying to deal with (e.g., S&D keeps asking me about registry changes, which I'm clueless about and keep denying, and I'm having difficulty changing my background again). Thanks to everyone here. You guys are a great.
To the admins here, I apologize if any of the links I posted are not allowed. I figured I'd post the links in case someone else has the same problem.
