Need help with a virus or something.

  1. My father wants me to fix his computer which he uses to run his company.
    The computer is acting really slow whenever I'm opening a new webpage, folder, or whatever. But when it's loaded, scrolling down the page works just fine. Already done the housecall scan on it, and it said it had some funky stuff which needed to be removed manually.

    I will post Hijack-log in a few hours, I hope

    EDIT: I'm now at the computer I'm suposed to fix, and I think I've fixed it. But I'm gonna post the HJT log now, and the rest of the logs tomorrow (I hope).
