I am fighting to issues on my computer. Maybe they are related maybe not...please help me get rid of them.

First Issue: McAfee Virus scan keeps telling me that it has found a virus called New Poly Win32. I supposedly delete the virus but then the virus warning comes right back just as soon as I open Internet Explorer. I delete it again and it reappears when I open IE, the process goes on and on. So this New Poly Win32 (which McAfee has no solution for) keeps popping up each time I open IE. Is it really a virus and how do I get rid of it?

Second Issue: When I open Internet Explorer and click on a link, the next page will open for a few seconds and then bounce me back to the Google Search page. If I hit the "back" button it will take me back to the page I want to go to in the first place. I can stay there but if I try to go to another page, it sends me to Google search again, but this time it does it quicker. Hitting the back button will work sometimes but then sometimes it returns to Google Search, but quicker this time. After awhile Google search takes over (like it is learning and has a mind of its own) and will not let me go to the page I want to go to. I see the page for a brief second and then bam, right back to Google Search I go. Google Search actually takes over my browser. I have even tried putting www.google.com in my block list and it still takes me there. It only does this on IE and not on AOL or Firefox. So I have started using Firefox in the meantime but I want my IE back.

I don't know if this has anything to do with it but it seems that all of this started happening after I signed up for Google Gmail. Maybe this is pure coincidence, but the problems started after I searched for a link to sign up for Gmail and I received an email from someone giving me a code to let me sign up for it (the Google Gmail is now closed to new users, you have to get an invite from someone to sign up. It is in beta format and the have close it out). I don't remember downloading anything for Gmail so I am not sure how this would have corrupted my system. McAfee did not alert me to a virus from the email that gave me the link.

I have tried using McAfee Virus scan, Spybot, Ad-Aware and Spy-Subtract and they have not been any help (ie problem is still there). I even t

I am posting a log from Hijack This. Please let me know if there is anything you see that I can do to get rid of these pesty bugs or solve my problem. Please be specific, I am not new to computers but never really used Hijack much or fiddled with my Registry.

Thanks for your help.
