I believe this is a part of, or related to, CoolWebSearch (CWS), which can add addresses to the HOSTS file, redirect search and start page settings, and may put the hijacker's web site in your browsers Trusted zone.

Please follow the recommendations and instructions in the links below to help protect and cleanup your system. When you get to the third thread, go to post #6 to (hopefully) remove CWS/evker.

When you've finished, please post a HijackThis log for review.

There's only one problem indicated in your HJT log:

O10 - Broken Internet access because of LSP provider 'xfire_lsp_9028.dll' missing

You can fix your broken LSP stack with the free WinsockXPFix utility. The program is very easy to use; a tutorial can be found here.

Hi,
Try this, since you have XP SP2, there's a built-in command to repair LSP. Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt. In the Command Prompt, type netsh winsock reset and press ENTER key. Next, type exit and press ENTER key. Restart the PC, and post a fresh log of HijackThis.

Also, perform a scan using Aluria, and post back whether it finds anything or not.
