A co-worker brought her laptop to me and said it would not connect to the internet.

I loaded malwarebytes and ran it. (I could not update it as there is no internet.) It found 214 infected files and removed them. I then ran super anti spyware and it removed 13 additional files.

I have ran Hijack this and have a log file.

CA antivirus is on the computer but when you do a scan it runs 10-15 seconds and says no problems found.

The wireless adapter is disabled and the ethernet connection results in the computer trying to go to the site below.

CA DID report a BHO that was infected but I do not know which it was.

The site the computer tries to connect to is http://click.w3i.com/?Programid=173&Elementname=ErrorPage&q=frontier.my.yahoo.com%20&applicationid={77938EE0-B9B7-4851-846F-6840748416B1}&version=3.8.2&vintage=20100832&Defaultbrowserid=8&Productid=2472&Vendorid=5750&Offerid=6688&sc=-2146697211

super anti spyware recognized that the home page was Yahoo but did not correct the problem.

Specs on computer HP Pavilion Entertainment Pc
4 Gig ram
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0 ghz processer
230 Gig HD
