It's at 48%...running pretty slow, I'm guessing because it's badly infected. "A variant of Win32/Adware Yontoo application"

I forgot to check a couple of the advanced settings ( Scan potentially unwanted applications
Scan for potentially unsafe applications) though...I hope that's ok. I can rescan it again later.

Ok so I finished the IE and Chrome scans and they each had 13 threats... I attached both the scan results to this message. What do I next to actually remove these adware threats? I'm installing Ad-Aware and Malware Bytes..

And going back to my Windows folder being 21 gb, most of the gb being used up are in the winsxs folder. Is there a way to remove files from it?

I would also like to transfer the Users folder over to the E: drive because it's taking up another 13 gb of space.

So I think I removed all the infections now using those programs you listed. Thanks for all your help VistaKing, really appreciate it. Now if I can just figure out how to transfer my User folder to my E: and reduce the size of my Windows folder...
