I've scanned my computer with Trend Micro and it found TROJ STARTPAG.NK (twice) and TROJ DLOADER.JU as viruses in my computer. I have no idea how to get rid of them.

Anyways here's my HiJack Log

We can definitely help you, but first you need to help us. The first step in this process is to apply Service Pack 1a for Windows XP. Without this update, you're wide open to re-infection, and we're both just wasting our time.
Click here: http://www.microsoft...p1/default.mspx
Apply the update, reboot, and post a fresh Hijack This log.

Some hijacks interfere with the installation of Service Pack 2, so we'll hold of for now. When we're finished cleaning your computer we highly recommend installing SP2. Click here: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/.
-or-
It's a very large download, so if you're on dial-up, order a free CD here:
http://www.microsoft...default810.mspx

Also, download the latest version of Hijack This here.

Sorry it took so long, I hope you see this. By the way thanks for the reply <_<

Here's my new HiJack, I think I've installed the 1st service pack properly.

It hasn't been too long, so don't worry about that. It appears that you tried to download your updates, but I'm unsure whether they were downloaded in full. Run them again - all except SP2, per admin's instructions, and post another log. <_<

According to the Microsoft Website, I've installed

Security Update for Windows XP (KB828741)

A security issue has been identified that could allow an attacker to compromise a computer running Windows and gain control over it. You can help protect your computer by installing this update from Microsoft. After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer

Is this what you wanted me to download?

Here's my HiJack, it still doesn't say anything new in the Platform part.

Well I guess this is pointless since I don't see any signs of an active infection in your log.

Just to be safe I'd recommend you 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/

Without SP1 your computer Will be compromised within 20 minutes connecting the Internet (on average). Service Packs are crucial to maintaining your systems security.

Now would be a good time to download SP2
lCongratulations! Your system is CLEAN <_<

How do you prevent spyware from being installed again? We strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster (it's free for personal use) Click Here.

Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Consumes no system resources.

Download, run, check for updates, download updates, select all, protect against checked. All done. Check for updates every couple of weeks. If you have any errors running the program like a missing file see the link at the bottom of the javacool page.

It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks. Click Here to make sure that you have the latest patches for Windows.

These next two steps are optional, but will provide the greatest protection.
1. Use ANY browser besides Internet Explorer, almost every exploit is crafted to take advantage of an IE weakness. We usually recommend FireFox Posted Image.
2. Install Sun's Java. It's much more secure than Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine .

It's okay to delete the Hijack This folder if everything is working okay.

After doing all these, your system will be thoroughly protected from future threats. :D
