Hello everyone, recently I have caught a bit of a bug on the ol' computer. Here's the short story.

I got the "Think Point" malware virus about a week ago. Took a lot of work to get just that off of my computer. After checking registries and using removal tools I felt happy about vanquishing this foe. Sadly the next day I noticed several instances of "mshta.exe" running in my task manager. I can't really tell what all the processes are doing, but I have noticed that I get redirected when using search engines. I feel that this is some for of spy ware / malware. I've searched everywhere I can think of and my tools can't seem to narrow down the issue.

So in hopes to resolve this I have turned to you all for help and I am grateful that a site like this exists.

Thanks for the time and future efforts.
