I dowloaded a program and I could tell right away that it had put spyware on my PC- my internet wouldn't work anymore. I immediatly scanned with both AdAware and Spybot and they removed stuff except for one thing- miraclesearch. This stupid program puts popups on my screen EVERY MINUTE- even as I write this, and its extremely annoying. AdAware is the only program that finds the files, and even when it does they reappear right after.
Here is my HJT log:
