  1. It appears that my computer has been highjacked.
    I would like help in cleaning it up. I have attached the HighJackThis log.

    Thank you in advance.

    Boot into safe mode and go to run > "services.msc" (without the "" quotes)

    Search for and disable the following services from start up (by right click > properties)

    Media Center Extender Service
    Viewpoint Manager Service

    Then run HijackThis and fix the following (they're all BAD):
    Reboot into normal mode, run and save a scan in HijackThis then post your fresh log.

    ran Malwarebytes anti-malware and did your suggestions
    acts fine
    not sure if that is all though
    This is the Highjack log file now

    I hope I didn't miss anything, but that log looks fine now. How is your system? What are the 'hijack' symptoms you were talking about?

    Seems fixed

    Thanks for the help, The problems before was that most double-click on links in pages or during Google searchs were redirected to and ad or to another search site. It also ran very slowly. During today, however, I have not had any redirects so I hope the problem is behind me.

    Thanks again,
