  1. My google searches are being redirected and my PC is beginning to run slow. I ran through the 8 step process and have attached the logs. The PC is running faster again. I hope it's clean... thanks for looking at the logs. This has been helpful.

    My lame first attempt at posting log files left out the most important part... asking "please help". I have no idea what a good hijackthis log file looks like verse a bad one.

    Hi Robert

    Your logs are clear of Malware. Good job.

    Update Java

    There are some useless wheel spinners in startup.

    But no worry about malware now.

    Bedtime for me now, but I will post some speedups tomorrow.

    How is everything now?

    The computer is running much faster now. Thanks. I appreciate you taking a look at the logs and for the advice on startup items that I don't need. I've always wondered how to eliminate un-needed items and clean-up the startup sequence. I'll update java now.
