Lets start with, Open the event viewer and let us know if there is anything with Red Exclamation Marks (Errors)
Open Event Viewer

Again, what solution were you referring to that you said did not fix the problem?

Hi, it would help if we see your startup. Go to start search and type cmd right click on the returned cmd.exe and select "run as administrator" at the prompt copy paste:-

Code:
wmic startup get Caption, Location, Command /format:list > 0 & notepad 0
press enter. Please post the notepad outcome here.

mywebsearch causes popups, annoying Malware and it slows down your internet browser.

utorrent is a good way to get infected with viruses for one thing, also alot of people use it to get illegal software, not that you are but... since we cant know what you are using it for. We cant really assist you until you uninstall it

Hi, you have a lot of startup programs that are not needed you can use Msconfig to uncheck most of what you have , not the MSE av though. You have an empty entry:-

Caption=
Command=
Location=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

This is most likely the problem , HOWEVER you really do need to post at our security forum, up to you they will discover if u torrent is still on your computer. Normally I do not respond to people who show this.

Take the advice and get your system checked by security jenae gave you a link to the steps you need to follow, then make a new thread in the virus,trojan and malware area and post all the info you gathered there and mention anything you could not do.
