I'm running a Window 7 Asus laptop that's a little over a year old now. In the past month or so, I've started noticing a few issues. For instance, gmail can no longer load in anything except html view, programs that have normally had no problem will occasionally lock while starting up, etc. Speed is still fairly normal, Microsoft Office programs haven't had any problems, and I can still browse the internet without trouble. So my use of the laptop hasn't really been impacted yet. But since this is my primary computer I'd rather be safe than sorry.

I've disabled java and done quite a few different scans. Microsoft Security Essentials and Spybot Search and Destroy haven't found anything significant. I'm currently running an ESET Online Scan. It's 87% complete and 2 threats have been found. The threats are "variants of 'Win32/HiddenStart.B application' and 'Win32/AirAdInstaller.A application'. I'll post the scan log when it's complete. I'll then run an OTL scan and post that log as well.

Okay, I have the OTL.txt and the Extras.txt

I'm worried about posting too much information about my computer on a public forum, so is it possible to send the logs to one of the experts in a private message?
