My computer is infected with spyware/malware

  1. My computer is infected with spyware/malware. When I click on a google search list, I am redirected to website other then the search link. Prior to that I had some other virus/spyware/malware that the PC was infected with, I use Webroot to take some of the virus out, but seems like this one is not being removed with Webroot.

    I have followed all the steps mentioned in the 8-Step Viruses/Spyware/Malware Preliminary Removal Instructions and am attaching the logs. Please help me.

    Thanks,

    Please verify the logs

    Hi, I would appreciate if someone can take a look at the logs and tell me if I have gotten rid of the virus/spyware/malware.

    Thanks, much appreciate your help.

    Here is a bump if it is wanted.

    If problems are still evident, post fresh HJT log.

    Code:
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\msiexec.exe
    I found no other reference in HJT log.  
    Common Name : Windows Installer; legit path & filename
    Notation made to inform user to run HJT in a "quiet" environment.
    Back Web has legit standing BUT there are detractors.
    O18 - Protocol: bwfile-8876480 - {9462A756-7B47-47BC-8C80-C34B9B80B32B} - C:\Program Files\Logitech\Desktop Messenger\8876480\Program\GAPlugProtocol-8876480.dll

    "Quiet" environment for HJT keeps user initiated applications to a minimum. The focus is on what the system looks like at startup.
