OK, Update on this one. Was able to delete ceres.dll in safe mode. Ran all scans in safe mode and removed everything. Rebooted ceres was gone. ISVRS seems to be the real problem along with redirected web sites in the 01 hijack this log. Those are still there. I've been following isvrs postings but they have led nowhere, will keep checking posts or if someone wants to try and tackle this one go for it. I have checked all other sites, it seems as though the only fix has been reformatting, i'll hold out a little longer as i don't want to reformat.

BTW, judging by the amount of views i've had on this post i have to assume there are a few folks out there with the same problem. Still believe that ceres.dll had something to do with isrvs but not sure.
