To verify that the machine is clean, please go to the Malware Forum and follow the instructions found there.
That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself...then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum. Be patient, the Malware Forum is a very busy place and a two or three day wait is not unusual. DO NOT REPLY TO OR BUMP YOUR OWN LOG. If it shows a reply it may be overlooked as one that is being worked on.
If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.

Startup Inspector (FREE)-- removes Startup Programs, should be able to get rid of your problem with only this, but I recommend the other software below this link.
Adaware SE Professional ($40 highly recommended, or Personal Edition for Free) -- The $40 one will include Ad-watch very useful because it protects the registry from unauthorized changes. Most malware will try to replace itself in the Windows registry stopping you from deleting it, but ad-watch will almost always prevent this.
These 2 programs along with Avast! Home Edition and Windows SP2 will protect Windows from almost any attack. This is the setup I use and it works tremendously well. Never have recieved a virus using this method.
Happy virus killing!

Bobbydoo8- none of the programs you mentioned will help in this situation, for they are more preventitive than reactive. Furthermore, in reading your other posts, I'm not sure that you know the difference between AV protection and a firewall. Please refrain from posting about security until you have sent me a PM reassuring me that you have sufficient knowledge to help posters in these areas.
