Although I have followed other threads with similar problems, I can't seem to shake this problem without direct help. My Symantec virus scanner found a bunch of viruses and my Adware SE and S&D removers keep finding a load of problems every time I run them (even a minute or two later). Somehow problems get re-installed no matter what I try. I'll try starting with this problem: My hompage has been hijacked to http://www.all-websearch.com/10039/
Thanks so much for helping me! Here is my HijackThis log:

Thanks so much for your attention. Here is my new log. I also have installed Microsoft's Beta AntiSpyware and that helped a little, but still had some things to work out before your help arrived. My homepage is now under my own control!

Hi Shawn

webshots.scr is a utility which downloads images daily for your desktop and makes changes to your desktop appearance settings intermittantly. This is a non-essential process. Disabling or enabling this is down to user preference.

Congratulations! Your system is CLEAN :tazz:

How do you prevent spyware from being installed again? We strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster (it's free for personal use). Click Here
QUOTE
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 http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ 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 user 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. ;)
