Run Malwarebytes in Safe-Mode and do a Custom Scan for your C: drive. I ran into this virus 2 weeks ago and I successfully got rid of it today using that method.

One more piece of advice. DNS Unlocker adds a Task on Task Scheduler to use Windows Powershell to direct its victims to other sites. See malwarebyte's forum to remove the tasks.

P.S. Mine was set to "At 4:38PM every day - After triggered, repeat every 08:00:00 for a duration of 1 day." - This was directly linked to Powershell.
