That's right. My mistake, completely forgot about that.

Mark - If you haven't disabled Defender then I wouldn't add a second virus scanner. Either disable Defender or just stick with it. The main reason it's not picking that stuff up is that it's basically a grey zone when it comes to adware. You can try a full system scan with it to see if it picks those up. I'd just run Malwarebytes again and put a check mark beside all the items it finds to clean up your system.
