IE6 hijacked [RESOLVED]

wonder if you can possibly help. I have a problem with IE6 in that whenever I connect to the internet I find that my homepage cannot be displayed.
On looking at the internet settings my hompage had been greyed out (which made me think of malware). I ran spybot to no avail, same with adware.
I ran Browser Hijack Restore from Major Geeks and that freed up the ability to change my homepage but didn't allow the page to load.

I am running Zone Labs with antivirus but the problem persists even when this is shut off.

I am hamstrung at the moment at the moment since I cannot download patches and such (my internet connection is seemingly unavailable). I have been using a second hard drive in my machine to download the above software and burning to cd to copy across to the original offending hard drive. My time is being eaten up!

One thing that has changed (though not sure exactly why) is that originally the internet connection was showing many packets sent and received, even though I couldn't use the connection. Since freeing the homepage there are what I would say are the right packets being sent and received (the numbers don't change when the link is sitting there idle).

My hijack this log is as below, really hope you guys can help!

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.

Apply the update, reboot, and post a fresh Hijack This log.
