Welcome to Bleeping Computer smashman02,

Please read and follow the instructions in this topic; Preparation Guide for use before posting a HijackThis Log .
When you have done that, post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, Not Here.

After posting a log you should not make any changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, delete files, edit the registry, etc.) unless advised by a HJT Team member.

If you haven't heard back from them in 5 days, go to this topic, Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days? ,and carefully follow all directions.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.

smashman02 should run Hijack This for the proper removal of My Web Search.
IMHO, posting a Log in our Hijack Forum may have been a safer, more comprehensive route for the OP.
