Thanks for the help.

I am currently having trouble using search engines. The first time I use a search engine after booting up the computer I am nailed with constant popups with the url http://click.linksynergy.*****. The only method I can stop them is to end the iexplorer process. This happens every 30-45 minutes.

Also, I find that in my history I have been spammed with many pop-ups over the day. Some I know to be Neededware. Others are just labled ad.

Also, I have recently been receiving alerts from Spy Sweeper v. 4.03 that mlswrye.exe is trying to start. When I tell it to remove, it tries again about 20 seconds later.

Here is my hijackthis log:

Download, install, and run CleanUp! (so the below scan won't take as long because cleanup will clear temporary files and cookies) Cleanup! deletes EVERYTHING out of temporary/temp files and does not make backups. If you have anything you need in temporary folders, back it up or move it prior to running cleanup!

Then, please run this online virus scan:
ActiveScan

Copy the results of the ActiveScan and paste them here.
