At first, the only problem was the home page getting hijacked. I could still go to any website I wanted to. Now, when I try to go to any website (except probably the one set up by the hijacker), I get...

Access blocked - Virus Warning!

The URL address for this screen is "res://xmllib.dll/HTTP_Blocked.htm"

Here's a current HJT log...

I followed your instructions, and it looks like everything works correctly now. The only odd think I noticed is that in my IE restricted zone, I have about a dozen entries, probably all CWS-type entries...

superwp.by.ru
*.coolwebsearch.
*.coolwwwsearch.
catss.ad.ru
...etc., etc., etc.

I happened to notice these for the first time yesterday when trying to diagnose the hijacker. They are the same ones that were in the restricted zone while I was hijacked. If I tried to remove them yesterday, they would always come back. They still come back after removing them now, even though I don't seem to be hijacked any more.

Here's the latest HJT log, after following all your instructions above.

Thanks,
Ira

Well. As long as those entries are in your Restricted zone and the settings for the restricted zone are as they should be (not allowing one thing) then I'd be happy they are in there.

Some anti-spyware application you used may have put them there.
I'm guessing Spyware Doctor

Your log is clean. :tazz:

Please do have a look at my site about removing and preventing spyware.
