Lets start by scanning with hijack this and put a check in the box next to this entry:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [CleanRegPath] C:\PROGRA~1\ADSLUT~1\CleanReg.exe

Click "Fix Checked"
Reboot your computer into safe mode by tapping the F8 key right after the first screen comes up on reboot. You will then have a list of choices, choose "Safe Mode" Once in windows navigate to C:\PROGRA~1 find the directory ADSLUT~1 and delete it. Reboot normally and post a new hijack log with any further details pertaining to your problem.

Well there's nothing too awfully bad in your log. Hmmmm first scan again and remove these entries.

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch =
R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing

What is the website that the shortcut is to? Also go to your desktop properties and check the filename of your desktop and post this information to further help in removing this from your pc.

In the meantime please run a free online virus scan here (tick the "Auto Clean" checkbox):
http://housecall.antivirus.com/

And a free trojan scan here:
http://www.moosoft.com/

Please post new log when finished.
