Everytime I start up IE it goes to a porn site, and then tries to download a trogan (which Nortan Anti-virus blocks.) I tried Ad-Aware and CSW-shredder, but they find nothing. I tried manually removing the browser links in my Registry that the Hijacker places there, but the hijacker resets them back as soon as I exit Regedit.


Any help on finding and eradicating this hijacker would be appreciated. Below is log from HijackThis...

Thanks for the quick reply. Tried that, but the hijacker trojan simply changes the Registry back to the way it wants after HijackThis does its thing. Attached is a log after I ran Hijacker. The trogan seems to have inserted itself someplace and knows how to reset things back.

I aslo noticed that, if I run IE and let it go to the porn site, suddenly my list of trused sites has several hundred junk sites listed. I removed all these, but it does not solve the problem either.

Below is HT log:
