Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to your desktop. check for Updates before scanning.

Download SmitfraudFix, and select Option 2. Clean (Safe mode recommended)

the malware byte should remove the infections.
Also, try to manually remove "MYwebsearch "program from the control panel.
I would like to advise you to download and run spybot

You need to click on "Remove Selected" at the end of the MBAM scan in order to remove the malware.
At the moment your log just says "No action taken" against each entry.
Run the scan again; when it completes, make sure there is a tick in every box next to each entry, then click on "remove selected".
MBAM will then quarantine the malware. If you click on the "Quarantine" tab, you can go in and delete the quantine file, thus permanently removing whatever was found.

I had Antivirus 2009. My computer would not let me get to the website to download malwarebytes, superantispyware, spywaredoctor or combofix.  When I tried to install them from a memorystick then the infected computer wouldn't allow the installation.  I then installed all of these scanners on another "cleaner" computer and removed the hard disk from the infected one and installed it as a slave in the clean computer and ran all 4 of these spyware scanners.  They all removed something extra.  After that I put the disk back in the original infected computer and ran combofix again - it still removed folders.  It eventually worked.  I hope that your computer isn't as badly affected as mine :-)
