Have been battling this thing for a week now. Have run Cwshredder,Hijackthis,Ad-aware and Spybot. They will find something after a redirect and clean it up but after some random period of time (from 1 hour to 1 day) or random number of reboots ( 1 to 6) it starts back up. Inbetween all scans report a clean system. I've even run prcview looking for 61c00000 61440 didn't find it but did find a 63000000 61440 which I tried to erase with Killbox. Killbox had no effect on the file and several hours later, I was back to the about:Blank website.

I really could use some help. Thanks

Jim Moses

The Hijackthis log looks a little different each time the virus returns, but here is the last one:
