    Whilst I was searching for male related things, a pop-up said that I was infected with such and such. I thought it would just lead to worse things so I clicked Cancel. Once I had finished that, the My Search Bar installed itself. I uninstalled it twice. It finally seems to be gone now though. Then a case of severe mouse lag set in, terrible, just terrible. Windows lag came along later, so as when I tried clicking on a window, it would take 2-3 mins just to open up. I've tried ScanDisk, Defrag, Ad-aware and SpyBot numerous times, but to no avail. This is really getting quite difficult for me.

    Below is the HijackThis log.

    One more thing. It often redirects me to obscure porn sites....

    Hi Octavian123,

    I have this hunch.

    Check the item listed below in HijackThis, close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [mswspl] C:\WINNT\sb.exe

    Then reboot and mail that file to pieterATwilderssecurity.org (replace AT with @)
    Let us know if that improves performance.

    Regards,

    Pieter
