thanks for the help!!! when i finished the super scan it found no problems. i can still post the log if i need to but since it said it was o.k. i figured that it would not help. the google search still gets hijacked sometimes, not with every search, when it happens it displays a page thst says the page your are looking forhas moved HERE, i never click on the HERE link, it then without any input it re directs to a differtent page that look like a scam search results page. any ideas or help would be much appreciated.
THANKS AGAIN!!!!!

As I cannot cofirm the next tool is safe for this OS I am going to ask you to post an HJT log. If you cannot perform a step move on till you complete the process.

We need to run HJT/DDS.
Please follow this guide. Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Hijackthis. Then go here HijackThis Logs and Virus/Trojan/Spyware/Malware Removal ,click New Topic,give it a relevant Title and post that complete log.

Let me know if it went OK.
