I wasn't having any signs that lead me to believe there might be something wrong, other than this computer being slower than dirt. But as a regular check, I updated MBAM and did a quick scan, and it returned these results:

It didn't request for me to restart after it removed what it listed above, but I did anyway, and ran another quick scan afterward. The second quick scan came back clean.

Is there anything else I should do, or did MBAM successfully remove it the first time? I'm not familiar with the "MyWebSearch" thing, but what the search tool on this site (and Google) pull up doesn't seem to be much fun. So, I wanted to make sure.

Run an online virus scan at eset.com and let it fix any virus issues.

Here is a tutorial about slow PC issues. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/87058/slow-computerbrowser-check-here-first;-it-may-not-be-malware/

The loh from MBAM might be remnants leftover from a previous infection.
