Just to cover the basics, have you cleared your cache? Go to internet options from tools in IE, delete cookies and internet files (be sure to check the box for offline content). You might try the microsoft antispyware (http://www.microsoft.com/spyware) versus that other anti malware stuff. Unless the admins here fnd somethng in the hijackthis info I guess.
