Hi - my system has become VERY slow (it is an older machine.) Tonight when I connected to the internet, I got a McAfee warning that my system was trying to connect from a different location that usual. I have a HiJack This file that I ran a few maments ago. I have attached it in case it is useful.

A few days ago, I ran TrendMicro Housecall taht identified four malicious adware programs and eliminated all but "Mal_Otorun2"

Any ideas anyone - ?

Please help. My browser is being redirected about 8 of 10 times. A scan a few days ago cleaned up all but Mal_Otorun2.
I have a HiJackThis log which is attached. I do not know how to get rid of this attack.
