Hello benevolent Geek helpers,

My computer is not behaving like itself. In the last few days, I was getting Aurora popups, and other misc popups. I have followed the "malware" instructions (it took me several days) and right now things seem better.. but my browser still gets re-directed to winfixer. And I often get winfixer popups when my browser loads another web page. I do not want winfixer. I cannot figure out how to get rid of winfixer.

Here is my "hijackThis" log. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
