Was the log taken in safe mode? If so, please do another in normal mode and post that.
When you *fix* with hijackthis, all Internet explorer windows must be closed.

Hi, Im having this same problem.

Tried everything but a reinstall to get rid of this. Ive got all my Windows Updates, I'm running ad-aware and PC-Cillan, and I've run every other anti-spam/worm/trojan/virus/spyware app I could find.

I cleaned out my registry start-up entries manually, tried all of this in safe mode too.

Happy to post my HijackThis Log but wanted to make sure someone hasnt already figured out how to fix this.

Thanks in advance, and heres what the popup looks like:
(I get this every 5 minutes or so, how evil is this?)

This worked for me:
search for a file named systr.dll
c:/windows/system32/
rename or delete the file, reboot, rescan with adaware se, it will find again a few reg keys/values and remove them.
And that's it!

As a pecaution I also did a clean history, cookies etc.

Before that the reg keys and IE homepage were rewritten at a rate of about 20/sec. (viewed with regmon). Now it-s all quiet.

And get Firefox as a browser. IE is much more vulnerable. ;)
