I posted a log in the hijackthis forum. It takes a while for them to respond so im hoping someone can suggest something that might help....

a few days ago my computer started acting wierd. its really slow, it takes a long time to boot up, when i try to use ie i get redirected to shopping sites and advertisments. there is a security warning in my startup area on the bottom right hand side of the screen that says security warning your computer is infected....... i dont want to click on it because i think that that will lead to more problems. after my computer boots up i get a few pop ups saying that registry errors were found. while im on the internet my computer will freeze and the only way i can get it to start and work properly is if i restart. since its frozen i have to restart by holding the power button down for 10+ seconds. i ran a few scans in safe mode (i was told that might work) i used dr webcurit(removed a few things) ewido spybot(rem9obed a few things) and ad aware se. i tried to use AVG but its not working. it was working last week

can someone please help me. as im writting this this thing is already starting to act up......

please help and thank you for your time

Your log is posted here.

Please refrain from asking for help from other members or staff until the HJT Team has checked your posted log. The HJT Team work very hard to investigate a unique solution to your problem and you will receive individual expert assistance.

This takes time and effort so we ask you to please be patient while waiting for assistance and NOT to make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member. Any modifications you make on your own can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, following advice outside of that post may cause confusion for the team member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

The HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean. If you followed any other advice already, please ensure you inform the HJT Team Helper when they respond to assist you with your log. This will help them know what has been done and they probably will ask for an updated log.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic until you are cleared by the HJT Team. If you still need assistance after your log has been reviewed and you have been cleared, please PM me or another moderator and we will re-open this topic.

Thanks for your cooperation.
