    The thing is... whenever you try and remove this trojan via somthing like trendmicro/pandascan it will just redirect you somewhere else - it won't let you access any websites that are AV related, won't even let me update AVG.

    I have tried

    CCleaner, AVG (straight install), Windows Defener and Malwarebytes... starting to get on my ****!

    Safe mode with networking, check your hosts file is clean and manually remove it, it's not exactly deeply jammed in your OS
