I picked up a IE hajacker program which reinstalls upon boot-up. Pest Patrol finds: ISTBar, Stop Pop, Twain-tech, vx2.abetterinternet, vx2.f, winpup32. Which I removed
Adaware found no problems. Spybot found ISTbar.Slotch which it removed.

I rebooted and Pestpatrol again found this log:

I switched to Mozilla Foxfire as default browser, but when I reboot IE opens up to screen saver ad and other sites.

Hi there,

You are running an old version of HijackThis,

Please do this.

Download 'Hijack This!'. Here
Save it to a convenient permanent folder like this C:\HJT\HijackThis.exe, double click HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log, Ctrl-A to Select All, and copy its contents here. Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, don't fix anything yet.
