My home page is being reset to about:blank and I keep getting pop-ups saying that a spyware module has been detected on my system. Can anyone help me fix this?

I ran CWShredder. It removed two items. Ran Spybot. It found nothing. Ran Ad-Aware and removed everything it found.

I think the spyware "warning" ads which kept popping up on my desktop are gone. Still have the about:blank home page and the pop-up ads whenever the homepage loads. If anyone can help me get rid of this I would really appreciate it.

Here is the new HJT log:

Please help. If I am violating forum protocol by sending this back to the top, please let me know. I was just afraid that no one would see it back on page six.

Click here to download and install Registrar Lite. Install, run, copy and paste this line to reglite's address bar:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\\AppInit_DLLs

and hit the "go" tab. Find: "Appinit_Dlls" value on the right side panel, DoubleClick, copy and post here the information in the 'Value' field.

OK, let's see if this clears it. Create a new folder called C:\HijackThis, move the HijackThis.exe file into the new folder and run it from there. This is necessary to ensure you have backups should anything go wrong and avoids them cluttering up your desktop.

Make sure that you have no browser windows open as this could prevent the fix from working properly. Open HijackThis, scan and when complete, remove the following entries by checking the box to the left and clicking 'fixed checked':

Reboot when done, rescan with HJT and post a new log here for a final check over.
