ok juliet the mbar finished and stated there was no malware and cleanup not needed. at the other link i ran it as said through command prompt. as it finished i was reading what it said what was found and i noticed the address in windows but command prompt just closed! poof! it was gone. i tried to and found the address of the log i'm posting but you'll have to tell me what it says. it seems to be running smoother and faster...thanks well in posting it i'm prompted the entity is too large
