Follow the suggestions in this thread:
http://www.daniweb.com/techtalkforums/thread19959.html

Go to the following locations and delete these files (if found):

C:\WINDOWS\System32\systr.dll
C:\WINDOWS\system32\svrhost.exe

If you can't delete them, try booting into Safe Mode and then delete them.

Download CWShredder 2 from here:
http://www.intermute.com/spysubtract/cwshredder_download.html

Run it and press Fix (not scan) and allow it to clean the infection. Close all windows before hitting the Fix button.

Download Hoster from here:
http://www.funkytoad.com/download/hoster.zip

Run it, and when it opens, click on the Restore Original Hosts button and then exit Hoster.

Reboot, close any open browser windows, scan with hijackthis, and post a new log please.

Hi,

I dont have those two files on my system (that I could find).

I ran cwshredder, then the hosts one and this is my new HJT log file.

I am not sure about the fix of downloading an .exe file from the hotoffers site. How safe is this? What other damage will they do to my computer?

Thanks

I dont have those two files on my system (that I could find).

Do you have your system set to show hidden files and folders?

Quite a few people have used it with success and I haven't heard of any problems yet.

Yes, I even went back and checked again.

What i did find in my C:\\windows\system32 folder was, i did a sort by date and all the icon files were loaded at exactly the same time as were two others,

param32.dll an application extension
guninst an application file

could these be my problem?

Hey, good job! :) Yes, those are related to your problem; you may want to look around for this one too -- popup_bl.dll

You'll probably need to boot into Safe Mode to delete them.

Afterwards, reboot normally, scan with HJT, and have it fix:

Be sure to close any open windows before hitting the Fix button.

Scan again with HJT and post a new log.

I DID IT! I had to start in safe mode, but yes deleting those three files fixed it.

YIPPEE! and i didnt have to download anything from their site. I still had to delete all the icons (going nowhere) off my desktop and change my homepage back.

But all is well. I have so many adaware/malware etc programs on my computer now I shouldnt get into trouble again!

Thanks heaps for your help.

here is my latest log
