Not sure how I got it, but problems started arising...home page was listed as About:Blank, but the url was quicknavigate.com...couldn't even go to yahoo (it would revert back to the quicknavigate home page even if I typed in www.yahoo.com)

plus, I have tons of pop ups. Went through the helpful guide here, mostly to no avail unfortunately. The only thing that has worked is a program called Webroot Spy Sweeper (downloaded trial version from Download.com), which prevents the home page from being switched. However, this seems to be a temp solution as I believe if I were to turn off the program things would go back to being problematic.

Every time I run adaware, or Spybot S&D, they get rid of a bunch of stuff...but then some of it comes back anyway. Can't figure it out, getting tons of popups...help!

Here's my Hijack this log (it's an improvement versus where I started, but as I said I still have problems)...
