I am have some rather annoying problems with my laptop. I keep getting trojans' popping up all over the place, and software like AVG and Ad-aware does not seem to be able to do more than detect it.

More specifically I am getting:

Trojan horse Startpage.21.D - C:\\WINDOWS\system32\dmeg.dll
Trojan horse Startpage.19.J - C:Documents and Settings\Tom Giles Bacon\Local Settings\Temp\se.dll
Trojan horse Dropper.Small.22.AW - C:

I am doing a scan as i write this but keep getting loads of these trojans all in my System Restore Information... I think you get the idea, so I wont keep writing them out!!

I also keep getting RUNDLL errors occuring when I run internet explorer, and my homepage has been changed to about:blank.

I fear from what I have been reading that these are some seriously bad trojans. I have downloaded HijackThis 1.99.1 and have run a system scan. Here is the log produced:

If anybody at all has any ideas as to how to save my computer without me having to do a complete wipe of the hard disc and a reinstall I would be most grateful!!
