Hi, no one ever responded to my HiJack log, so I have been trying to fix the problem with my untrained eye. I downloaded Spybot Search & Destroy from another website and used it to try and clean out some of my system. There are a few big problems that come up everytime I scan my computer namely: WeHancer, this really annoying pop-up maker caled Zeno, and another thing called Collwwwsearch, but no program seems to permanently erase these files. I decided to use finder and search my computer for all files named Zeno, and then delete them. When I did the search ALL Zeno files, and Webhancer, and everything else that came up bad in my scans are in the Spybot Recovery folder. Could Spybot be the thing causing all my problems? Should I erase it from my computer?

Mod Edit: This topic will be moved to a more appropriate Forum.

After posting a log, it's best NOT to make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, delete files and other items on your own, etc.) unless advised by a HJT Team member. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted and can complicate the malware removal process.
