It seems as though I have been infected with CWS- or some variant...

I have tried to remove it using CWShredder-- and sometimes it finds something, others it finds nothing-- but no matter what- after reboot-- its back. IE homepage reset to about:blank-- and obvious system/browsing slowdown from the norm.

I have used adaware-- with the most recent ref file and often times it is not even recognized. I've used spybot search and destroy- and nothing is recognized. The CWShredder will not let me update it-- dozens of attempts. I've tried just about everything I know how to do.

After a reboot- I have run HJT-- and the log will be posted below. I'm clueless about what any of it means. Hopefully someone can give me a hand with this.
