No matter how many time I remove from the registry the dirty keys, they always come back.

My browser gets this startuppage http://216.131.84.28/in/51 , which subsequently redirects it to www.start4search.com .

I've tried running ad-aware, SpyBot S&D and Spyware Doctor, CWSShredder, all with the latest updates and these programs always catch something new, but not, that which I suppose is the root cause (I suppose this particular spyware installs much of it's kin).

I'm using Windows XP, my C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts is empty
and my HijackThis log is as follows:

No need to bother, I've fixed it. Apparently the problem was this entry

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SysInit] C:/Program Files/Common Files/svchost.exe

I suppose it's a trojan.

Thanks anyway, sometimes just talking about your problem makes you notice things that missed you before. :p
