    My computer has been running very slowly the last few days. When I log onto the internet, it also runs very slowly and often hangs up. It also sounds like something is running in the background all the time.

    I have run Malwarebytes in and out of safe mode, but it has not detected any problems. I have run superantispyware (free edition) and have cleaned any adware it finds. The problem still persists.

    Can anyone help?

    I have reposted with a HijackThis log.

    I have also noticed that when I open internet and go to google to search for a subject, it redirects and jumps to a “searchandsavesite.com”page instead of the subject I am looking for.

    I have also gotten a svchost.exe application error and a Generic Host Process for Win32 error.
