Can someone look at this Combofix log? Machine still very slow

I have a Windows Vista laptop I'm trying to help with.  It's running VERY slow lately.  Granted the laptop only has 768 MB of ram and it's running Vista, but it still was quicker than this up until recently.  The user never had an issue with basic tasks, now lately opening My Computer can cause it to hang at times.  

I've run Combofix and it removed a lot, but it also mentioned some files it "coudl not find.'  Would someone mind looking over the log and see if a script is needed?

First off I would remove the Mywebsearch toolbar.

Okay, I finished Malwarebytes, it found a lot of stuff, most of it being the MyWebsearch toolbar so I guess Combofix didn't get it all.  Here is the MBAM log after it ran.

Does this look like it got it all?  I also see things such as Trojan-Vundo, etc.  Do I need a custom script for Combofix or is MBAM able to remove this?

or you can follow the instruction on this link
Combofix should have removed Vundo. However, in some instances you need to rename Combofix BEFORE you download it to your system. If not, and you are infected Combofix may not run properly. You may also need to run your antimalware applications in Safe Mode (If all else fails).
To enter Safe Mode, reboot and select F8 at startup, log on as usual and then run your scans.
Symantec states to disable System Restore for the Vundo infection. This also allows proper detection and removal.
Directions can be found here:
Symantec also offers a free Vundo removal tool.
