I did some research and believe I have the Poweliks virus.  Its quite interesting, you should check it out.  It doesn't download any files so that traditional virus searches can't see it.  It also uses non ASCII characters and encoding to hide itself.  It remains only in the registry key area and stays 'file less'.  There is an eset poweliks tool that seems to have fixed my issue.  For now.  I feel like its going to pop up at any moment again but for now all looks good.

I seriously doubt that you have that trojan. MBAM didn't pick up anything. You can keep MBAM on your computer and run it as many times as you wish.

maybe youre right.  i'm just saying that it fits the profile with symptoms and undetectability with virus scanning because of its non file creation nature.  when i ran eset powerlik scanner it confirmed the presence and cleaned it.  if i have any more virus now i am unaware of any symptoms.  i am afraid that since i have been compromised there may be back doors in to my computer for hackers if they already have all my system info.  not sure if i should just scrape this thing to be sure.

There was no evidence of an backdoor activity. If you wish to be completely safe, you can reformat and re-install the OS.
