I appear to have contracted an IESearch malware, which creates pop-ups, etc. I also notice that in my task manager bar, ieexplore.exe and svchost.exe are running and taking up a lot of memory, and I suspect they are related. I also see funky things in the HJT log, included below, followed by the StartUp Report. Any suggestions?
