Need help with HijackThis log
my computer is infected with some malware that hijacks the browser - doesn't matter which one - IE, Firefox, Chrome.
It allows you to do a search in any of the search engines. But once you get your search results page, clicking on any link will trigger the malware to redirect the link to pages that are advertisements. I did what the URL's fly by as it was redirecting. Here is some of the text that i've been able to see....
some strange url: 'http://18.104.22.168/search/web/........
I tried Avast! and have identified some virus'. But they won't get permanently deleted, even with a pre-boot scan. I'm now trying Malwarebytes (free edition).
I'm attaching the logfile from HijackThis. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Susan and welcome to SevenForums,
Please try the following:
1. Save all your work and close any open applications.
2. Open an elevated command prompt using this tutorial:
At the prompt, type the following ipconfig /flushdns and hit enter.
2. Once it completes, close the command prompt window, and then open a browser and download TFC.exe by Old Timer from this link, and save it to your desktop:
TFC - Temp File Cleaner by OldTimer - Geeks to Go Forums
Run TFC.exe, to remove any temporary files, by right-clicking on it and choosing 'Run as administrator' . Click the START button to run TFC and let it complete uninterrupted - any open browsers or programs will be closed. If TFC prompts you to reboot your computer, do that immediately. If TFC does not prompt you reboot after finishing, go ahead and reboot the computer anyway.
3. Once you have rebooted, please do an on-line scan of your computer using ESET's on-line scanner from this link:
ESET :: Get a FREE Online Virus Scan
If the scan finds any malicious items, make a note of their names and then go ahead and choose to delete/remove these items - post the names of any items here.
I noticed a Symantec folder on your list - do you have Norton installed on your system?
