Hello All,

First of all, I am so happy I found this forum. :lol: I've known others who have used it, recommended it and read other forum posts and this forum is a miracle maker! So thank you to the team of people who maintain this forum and answer so many questions! Anyways, on to what is wrong with my computer.

When I search with Google or Yahoo!, and click a link I am redirected to a advertisement site instead of the link I intended to visit. I performed Malware Bytes and Spybot Search and Destroy scans but, nothing was found. Then I noticed that my Avast! was unsecured and after fixing that and performing a full scan it found 11 threats. According to the file names they were located on my C drive in the "Windows" folder then "assembly" and "Installer" folders. Here's a screenshot of my Avast! Scan results.

I haven't deleted them because, after reading some previous threads on this site, that doesn't look like the absolute way to get rid of them. I would like to know how to exterminate them for good.

I am using Window 7 64-bit OS and Firefox

So thank you for you help! I will appreciate it.

Second issue: My internet access and programs are beginning to move slowly too. A program will take more time to start up than it used to. I have recent installed a few games. Could that be the problem?

Thank you for your future help. :lol:
