Computer has been moving very slowly, I'm not sure if it is infected, but in the add/remove screen there is a program call "Myway Search Assistant" but it can not be removed, thank you

Is the computer a Dell? Dell has been shipping their systems with the MyWay Search crud for a while. We can remove it manually, but what exectly happens when you try to uninstall it via the A/R programs control panel?

By the way- your HijackThis log was not included ;) Post one for us and we'll give it a review.

Aside from the two MyWay references below, your log is clean.

Run HijackThis again, put a check mark in the boxes to the left of the following entries, and then click "Fix Checked":

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = http://www.dell4me.com/myway
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = http://www.dell4me.com/myway

Once you've done the above you can set your home page to something other than the MyWay-sponsored Dell page.

I don't see any other evidence of MyWay components in your log; if you did try to uninstall MyWay from the Add/Remove Programs control panel, it appears that the uninstall worked for the most part. Sometimes the names of programs that have been sucessfully uninstalled get "stuck" in the control panel's list and need to be removed manually, and this might be the case with your MyWay entry. To remove the entry from the control panel, see this Microsoft support article.
