Update: the computer I was trying to fix has caught several new trojans/malware, I'll post a new topic soon. The original post is below.

Hello everybody. I'm trying to clean a computer that is infected with the vroomsearch.com browser hijacker. I've already ran Ad-Aware and Spybot S&D and rebooted the computer. The computer also seems to be free of viruses. Unfortunately, the browser hijacker refuses to go away. Here's the log by HiJackThis:

Hi pyryk

Please download the following fix: sphjfix
Unzip and run the program.

Please download, install and run this disk cleanup utility called Cleanup version 4.0!
It will get rid of any malware which may be hiding in your temp folders ( a common hiding place). You will also regain a massive amount of disk space. Here is a tutorial which describes its usage:
Check the custom settings to your liking under options, but be sure to delete temporary files and temporary internet files for all user profiles. Also, cleanout the prefetch folder and the recycle bin.
Reboot when prompted to let it clean out the remaining files.

Post a new HJT.log
