    Hi Monay2 and welcome to techspot. =)

    You may wish to copy and paste these instructions on notepad for easier reference later.

    Boot into safe mode under your normal user name. See how HERE

    Next turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how HERE

    Go to start > run and type services.msc. Press the enter key.
    Search for the following services. Double click to select stop if they are running. Set the startup type to disabled. Click apply/ok for each service you disable.

    Viewpoint Manager Service

    Go to start > Control Panel > Add and Remove Programs.
    Remove anything related to the following:

    Viewpoint Manager
    MyWay Search Bar/Assistant


    After that, run HijackThis and fix the following entries, if found (do this by placing a tick in the check boxes beside these entries and clicking "Fix checked"):
