    The instructions for W8/8.1 are the same as W10; see the link above for screenshots.
    You want to delete the following entries (if they remain):

    Code:
      127.0.0.1       down.baidu2016.com
      127.0.0.1       123.sogou.com
      127.0.0.1       Welcome to nginx!
      127.0.0.1       http://www.czzsyzxl.com
      127.0.0.1       union.baidu2019.com
    Here's how to do it:
    Navigate to your HOSTS file:
    In the search bar, enter
    Code:
    %WinDir%\System32\Drivers\Etc
    Open the folder.
    Copy the hosts file to your desktop.
    Rename the file in the original folder to hosts.old
    On your desktop, open the hosts file with Notepad.
    Remove the entries if they still exist. Save as hosts with no file extension and change the file type to "all files".
    Copy the new hosts file back into the original folder. Once all is verified working well, you can delete the hosts.old file.

    Flush DNS
    Open Command Prompt and type the following command
    Code:
    ipconfig /flushdns
    Press enter.

    Remove all Restore Points and create a new one.
    Type Create Restore Point in the search bar.
    In the box that opens (System Properties) Select Configure. Verify System Restore is turned on for your OS drive. If not, turn it on in the next step: select the radio button to Turn on system protection.
    Select Delete all restore points for this drive. Click OK. Make sure Local Disk C: System Protection id ON. Click Create and set a new restore point - call it Clean.

    The instructions from @Slartybart are also a good idea to perform.

    After these, please report how the system is running.
    At the part where you said put the new hosts file where the old one is and to see if all is well what am I looking for exactly is this to stop the command prompt from opening up at random times?

    Just making sure you can connect to the internet and navigate to web sites without any problems or re-directions, that's all. You can leave it there forever, it won't hurt anything. I usually wait a few days.

    Okay well all seems well so should I just keep the old hosts file in there or delete it?

    So now about the main reason I came looking for help which is to get rid of that command prompt popping up for like a split second.

    Do you have the results of SuperAntiSpyware and JRT?
    Have you performed the steps in post #5? Please turn off Fast Startup before doing that.

    We need to make sure the system is completely clean before we can move on to other methods.
