Help Please

I have tried many ways to remove the About:Blank virus and can't seem to get it killed. The version I have brings up a blank screen.

Here is a copy of my Hijack file:

I don't know if this is related but I have two programs in my Windows folder called MS2.exe and Tool.exe that I cannot delete but Mcafee tells me they are a virus.

I also have the file Unic2_32.dll which gets created everytime I reboot. This has something to do with about:blank but not sure.

Thanks for your help.
