I was working on some things and noticed my computer acting wierd. so I starting look into stuff like spy-ware and virus.

I first tried Microsoft Anti- Spy it can back clean
I Tried Adaware it can back clean
I tried Spy-bot it came back clean
I tried Pest Patrol throught the net It came back clean
I tried XoftSpy IT found a program called View Point, Which I never Had heard of. So I Checked it out I Didn't know to do after I went to their site.

I tried Spy Bouncer it found 3 things One I had a question, I knew it was spy ware the other I knew it was clean. the One that I knew was spy was call My Way Search Assistant. Aka My way Web search. I tried to remove it my self.

I ran an anti virus.
I just re ran HiJack This. Most of the stuff It In I know is clean, Yes I will send you the file if you want.:confused:

Hi Sages8067
You should not be troubleshooting on your own and asking for assistance at the same time.

When your finished post a fresh hijackthis log, this time all of it, that ones missing the header (portion at the top) and put it in a folder, dont run it from the desktop.

PS : viewpoint and myway are minor things that shouldnt be cousing problems, i do suggest uninstalling them via the windows addremove programs though.
