Hi
Close your browser window,run hjt in safe mode... How To Run Safemode  and fix the items listed.Any files/folders that I have highlighted  will also need to be removed from your hard drive as well as from the log.   Make sure to have your system set to show hidden files and folders... How To Show Files while still in safe mode,run "SpyBot S&D"and fix all it finds,also do the same with :Adaware".Please post a new log when finished....Please ask if you require further assistance.

Thanks, you guys are awesome.  I'll try this when I get back from work this afternoon.  Is there anywhere I can send donations or anything?

I did what you said, although there is one thing called "DSO Exploit" that no matter how many times I run Spybot it keeps coming back.  There is also something in my Windows Task Manager called rundll32.exe that is really using up a lot of my cpu.  

The lines in hijackthis for "auto.search.msn.com", "search.netscape.com", and "ieautosearch" did not appear in safe mode, thus I could not delete them, although they have dissapeared from my system now.  

Oh yeah, and I just got another "AD-W-A-R-E" opening up a new Internet Explorer, so the problem is not resolved.  Thanks in advance.
