Shoot ... was updating Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic for my kids and got highjacked. When I first open Internet Explorer it says, "about:blank" then it switches to a webpage called "startsearches.net." Can't get to Google or any other search engine. I discovered the "startsearches.net" files in my net log but after I try to fix them in "Hijack This" they just re-appear.
I have a Dell Dimension 2300
Help!

Here's my hijack log:
