I recently had some malware that would hijack my search engine results, the description of the result would be correct, as would the title, but the link and "similar links" would be all Ads.

I ran AVG and Spysweeper multiple times and only found a few "bad files". So i joined here and read a recommendation for MBAM. The first time i ran it i got over 140 bad files, once removed, my browser seems to be working great.

This is my first thread and thanks to reading other threads first, it is just to say thanks for the help.
Thanks again,

If you only ran it once, you have more work to do

Please reboot your computer and update Malwarebytes. This time do a FULL scan and post the new log here
