The backstory.

My computer restarted itself overnight, when I logged back on it had told me it Windows had updated. The first problem came when I'd do a Google search, I get to the main page, but when the search results came up, none of the links could be displayed. Then I couldn't access Google at all, as well as shutterfly, and various other sites. Sites that do load often load very slowly, almost slower than dial-up and I've broadband. Others load the way they should, some load really slow, but never quite load correctly.

I ran everything on the You Must Read This First thread. The Spyware Blaster I had run several times earlier this week, both in normal and safe modes. It found nothing so I got rid of it. My AVG picked up lots of instances of CoolWebSearch, It took 5 times to get rid of all those, the vault kept getting full. Panda said I was virus free, it also caused AVG to pop and say it had sent me a Trojan. I also saw a few instances of MorWillSearch in the AVG scan. I kept running that until it came up clear.

I tried doing a system restore in the beginning of all this, no luck. I also look at my HOST file, it had hundreds of entries put there by SpyBot, I killed all those.

My system has been rebooted to no end, and was rebooted prior to posting here. I'm not sure what else it could be, I've looked at everything I can think of. I tried shutterfly, and another site that were giving me trouble while typing this with the same result. It sends me to live search. Other times it will say Page Can't be displayed, or Invalid Address.

Here is my Hijack this log file, and the Malware log file as well. I really wanna avoid reformating the pc.

Oh, and just because I hear this all the time, "Switch from IE to Firefox". I've got Firefox as well, very same issues there.
