I have had hard drive space disappearing and reappearing for about a month now and it seems to change after I restart my computer, and I've ran a lot of virus scans over the past month and deleted a few trojans, I haven't been able to delete mywebsearch though.

Java uninstalled by it's self, it stopped working after I tried to update it, it just kept getting errors and now I can't install it because it keeps getting errors.

I haven't noticed any other files or programs missing and my computer is still running fine but if I leave my computer running for a long time it starts to go slower.

Sounds like mywebsearch or perhaps another malware program is causing you problems. Which antivirus/malware scans are you using? If you're unable to delete mywebsearch, trying to in safe mode may help out.

I am using Mcafee, malware anti bytes and spybot. I've tried to get rid of mywebsearch so many times with different scanners but it just won't go away, it seems many other people have this problem too.

If you are using MalwareBytes, try booting into Safe mode and let it do a scan. It may be able to accomplish more in Safe Mode.
