Hi,

I am having a problem when browsing the internet in that clicking on links will often take me to other search engines or advertisements. I wouldn't be surprised if my computer is infected with numerous pieces of malware or spyware that I would like to remove if at all possible.

Thank you in advance for any guidance you are able to give me.

Below is a copy of the log I got from HijackThis (which is also attached):
