Search Engine Hijack/Redirect
Hi,

My search engine results from google and yahoo recently began taking me to sites different than the url they had listed. I did a virus through McAfee's online check: C:\documents and settings\administrator\application data\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\javapi\v1.0\jar\jvmimpro.jar-3ad601a5-2fe8f821.zip saying it was infected with downloader.
I emptied the cache and that seemed to take care of it.

However, after using Spybot S+D, Ad-awareAE, ATF-cleaner, Malawarebytes' Anti-malware, SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition, uninstalling firefox (it appeared with both firefox and IE), and updating to the latest java version and deleting the others, the links I click on still occasionally take me to unwanted sites, though now the websites it tries to take me too fail to load due to a syntax error. I'm not really sure what else to do at this point, figuring any more I try to fix it might lead to me screwing up my computer (hopefully I haven't done so already). I haven't had any other problems besides my computer running slow and the search engine redirects. Here is the logfile. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
chris197

A couple more things
I am seeing more in text links, which when I hover over them, they bring up ads. Also my computer seems to be crashing a fair amount more.

Also, the second sentence in my previous post should say that I did a virus scan through McAfee, which detected the following virus.

New adlware
I think adware is being downloaded to my computer now as well. Adaware recently found a large amount of adware that it detected running in the background. I had run adaware previously and had thought it cleaned everything out, but I guess not.

Browser
I downloaded Chrome and that seems to run without any problems. However, both Firefox and IE are both still affected by the same browser redirect.
