Hello, My name is Susan and I hope that someone here can help me :pale:
My computer has been running a bit slow, but I had no real indication of any problems until last night when I did a Google search and when I clicked on the link I was redirected to a website selling something. Hmmm, me think to myself, bad link. Try another search result. Same thing. This happened on several attempts before I decided to see if I could have success with another search tool. I tried Yahoo and Good Search. Same thing. Still going on this morning. I run SpyBot. There were 8 entries that couldn't be fixed- win32 agents.ws/TrojansC-05.
A friend directed me to HijackThis. I ran the scan and here is my log,

Hi Susan and welcome to Malware Removal Forum, Sorry for the delay in answering your request for help the forum is really busy.
My name is Cypher, and I will be helping you with your malware problems.

please note the following important guidelines.
  • The instructions being given are for YOUR computer and system only!.
    Using these instructions on a different computer, can damage that computer and possibly make it inoperable!
  • If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to ask.
  • Only post your problem at One help site. Applying fixes from multiple help sites can cause problems.
  • Only reply to this thread do not start another, Please continue responding until I give you the "All Clean"
    Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.
  • Please DO NOT run any other tools or scans whilst I am helping you.
  • Please DO NOT install any other software (or hardware) during the cleaning process.
  • Print each set of instructions... if possible...your Internet connection will not be available during some fix processes.
  • Your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use. Be assured, any links I give are safe.
  • The logs from the tools we use can take some time to research so please be patient.
  • Note: If you haven't done so already, please read this topic ALL USERS OF THIS FORUM MUST READ THIS FIRST where the conditions for receiving help here are explained.

Please be aware that removing Malware is a potentially hazardous undertaking. I will take care not to knowingly suggest courses of action that might damage your computer. However it is impossible for me to foresee all interactions that may happen between the software on your computer and those we'll use to clear you of infection, and I cannot guarantee the safety of your system. It is possible that we might encounter situations where the only recourse is to re-format and re-install your operating system, or to necessitate you taking your computer to a repair shop.

Because of this, I advise you to backup any personal files and folders before you start.
Read Backup Made Easy

Please post an Uninstall list.

  • Open HijackThis.
  • Click on the Open the Misc Tools section button.
  • Look under System tools.
  • Click on the Open Uninstall Manager... button.
  • Click on the Save list... button.
  • It will prompt you to save. Save this log in a convenient location. By default it's named uninstall_list.txt.
  • Notepad will open. Please post this log in your next reply.

Hi Susan.

It has been two days since my last post.

  • Do you still need help?

  • According to Malware Removal's latest policy, topics can be closed after 3 days without a response. If you do not reply within the next 24 hours, this topic will be closed.

Due to lack of response, this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
