Hello. I am new to all this, so bear with me please. I paid a web development company to build a very important website. They have failed badly, and this is after one year has passed and little noticeable progress has been made. I assigned them the use of my domain name. They retaliated because of my complaints, and uploaded some sort of malicious code onto my domain name. My site was listed as an "attack site" by Google. When I would attempt to visit the site to inspect their work, it would take control of the browser, download some unknown (content) and then conclude with some sort of blank pdf type file. Each time I would attempt to visit the site, it would redirect me to some foreign domain name in another country... each time doing the same thing... installing something and then giving me a blank page. After that, my hard drive goes wild continuously, like it is now. What I do know for certain is that they did hack into my system via this method, becuase they accidentally provided me with a master file of all the (so-called development work, which was pirated from other jobs) which also contained image and video files that came from my system, with the same "modified date".

I did screen shots of what occurs when I visit any of the malicious sites, and I have attached two of them.
I just now went to the first URL below and did a Hijack This scan.
If anyone has a test system and is brave enough, one of the working URL's that has the malicious code still operational is:
<http://goodpsychologist.name//images/smilies/system/pdf.php?id=1487&vis=1>
Another working malicious link is:
<http://mumbaiproperties.info//awstats/icon/clock/system/pdf.php?id=2581&vis=1>

FYI- I have a lot of programs open now, including Photoshop, Excel, Mail, Notepad, HJT, MyComputer, WinZip, and 15 IE windows with multiple tabs in each, and the Task Manager. I would sure appreciate any professional opinions as to what the heck is going on here. I look at the list of processes and applications running, and I don't see anything suspicious. You guys are great. Thank you!

I will paste the HijackThis results here:
