Default small computer big bug problems

So heres my problem. I believe the problems started when I noteced that on my desktop was a E explorer icon name Ulubione strony. I deleted it and went on my way. Next time I restarted it was back. I looked it up online and downloaded a tool that was supposed to clean it up. I ran the tool. Didnt fix it. I then got both ad aware and spybot. I ran them and it killed some stuff and everything seemed fine. Then the computer started runny really REALLY slow and bad. I started in safe mode, deleted the desktop icon and ran those to aformentioned programs. they got many many different things so I thought it was clean. Not more than a day or so later It is slow slow again with many popups and redirects making it almost impossible to do anything at all. I need some help guys. If you can send me programs that can fix it I would be so thankful! My email is Everything that I have downloaded has not worked. Thanks

Follow these instructions carefully

Download ALL 4 programs and update them as soon as they are installed, this is very important, except for Hijackthis!.

Ad Aware SE Personal Free

Spybot Search and Destroy Free

Microsoft Antispy

HijackThis Free


Follow these steps

Delete the prefetch folder C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch, this folder will come back on next reboot.

Delete all cookies and temporary internet files in the control panel.

Go to Start, run, type msconfig, go to startup, disable everything except your antivirus, click apply, dont reboot yet.

Download Msconfig Cleanup below

Msconfig Cleanup Free

Run Msconfig Cleanup after you unchecked the items you were told to uncheck and recheck, click "Select All", then click "Clean up Selected", then click "Quit".

Now run each spyware program 1 by 1. Running all 3 at the same time will slow most systems down.

When each program has finished scanning, remove everything.

For Microsoft Antispy, after it has finished scanning, some items will/might be on ignore, you will need to select remove unless the program is valid such as VNC Viewer, etc.

Now go to the recycle bin and delete everything that is in it.

When finished with the scans, reboot, and go into Safe Mode and run these scans again, remove everything they find, and then reboot back into Windows in normal mode. You dont need to run Hijackthis! yet.

Then run HiJackthis!

Save the log, copy and paste the log on
Do not attach the log, copy and paste always. This will make things go much faster.
