Hi Crunchie,
I tried to find the problen dll myself but I can't seem to find it. I think it's masked or cloaked as a legitimate dll such as for a google toolbar, but I just may not know what I'm looking for. Ad-aware finds the bug, but as usual it reappears. I fix the R1's with HyjackThis but again they reappear. Can you give me some guidance? I have APM all ready to go. Here is the HJT log:
(Venturi is a ISP for Verizon Wireless and it's clean - I have used it for about a year.)

Also fix this with hijackthis:

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [window.exe] C:\WINDOWX\System32\window.exe

Reboot into safe mode following the instructions here & navigate to & delete the following if found:

C:\WINDOWX\System32\window.exe

Reboot normally.

Post another log after following the instructions given at the link that catweazle gave.

Hi Crunchie,
I had a problem following Phage's procedure. However, since it looked like a quick fix, I followed your suggestion to place a couple of brackets around about:blank and it worked. I now have complete control over the IE home page. Thanks a lot for that quick "fix" or work around. That process seems to make about:blank into a hypertext format which then responds to being over written. I wonder though if the offending files might still be on my hard drive?

I also followed your procedure to fix 04, but I didn't find any window.exe file in System32 while in Safe Mode..
Here is my latest HJT log:

Before I performed your suggestions, I ran Ad-aware again and it found a malware dll in a folder directly on the hard drive labeled RECYCLER. This was right under my RECYLCLED folder. In RECYCLER I found two files, they both were long numbered files and Ad-aware was able to delete the dll, but I can't remove the other one at all. It looks the same (S-1-5-21-1606980848-113...etc) but with no extension. Is there a program out there that I can run that will allow me to kill a read only file such as this?
Thanks again for your help!

Right click on the file & go to properties & uncheck the read only box. Press apply then try deleting it. Or
Download moveonboot from here & the file(s) you choose will be deleted on reboot.

MoveOnBoot allows you to copy, move or delete files on the next system boot. This comes in very handy, if you need to replace or delete files which are locked by other applications, loaded into memory or cannot be changed until next system boot. You could manually enter a line to the wininit files, but using MoveOnBoot is much simpler, since the program can be integrated into shell - it creates the "Copy/Move/Delete on boot" context menu item.

Thanks Crunchie,
I tried unchecking the read only box before but it wouldn't stay, but moveonboot did the trick. I guess based upon my last HJT log you may mark my thread as solved. Thanks again for all your help! :D
