hi, i just got infected with a startpage virus which has changed my default start page to http://rl.webtracer.cc/-/?bayzm.and it keeps opening a russian page. i have tried allthe spyware progs,like ad aware se, spybot s&d, even sysclean trend micro but nothing seems to work. also my mcafee 8 is no longer opening and gives an unspecified internet explorer script error message which looks like this -
line : 1
char : 1
error : unspecified error
code : 0
url : mcp://:c:\program-1\mcafee.com\agent\scuii.dll:mcdash.htm?appld=
do you want to continue running script.
don't know if it is related to the startpage virus. anyway my ie is also really slow now and all my win.ini & system.ini startup files are missing and some of my regular startup files as well in the msconfig dialog box. my comp seems to have also slowed down.here is the hijackthis log file for my system (am new to hijack this). can someone please tell me what to do.

sorry,i forgot to mention that i have run cwshredder and didn't have any luck haven't tried using hijack this fix yet though, by the way my antivirus seems to be working in the background but not when i try to open it manually. and it gives me a warning when i try to open the hijack this log.txt saying it is infected with Exploit-MhtRedir.gen trojan and then deletes the log file. i had to disable mcafee to get to the hijack this log file. whats up with that?
