Browser Hijacked - Desperately need help

  1. Hi all,
    a couple of days back I got what I believe is a browser hijacker; i.e. every search looks normal but the links go to advertising sites. I have absolutely no experience with computer maintanence or anything of the sort, and have been trying in vain to fix it. I have downloaded several anti-soyware/adware programs so if they show up in my HJT log thats why, and I'd feel fine to delete them.

    I downloaded HJT after looking on these forums and seeing it's commonly done. I will post the log, but I don't know if I'm doing anything right. If not, I'll make any changes you say. Thanks for any help I receive! It's a windows Xp.

    Moderator Edit:
    Pasted log removed
    All logs must be attached
    By the way, you only need 1 post count to attach logs, your 5 other Spam posts (Post#1.. Post#2...etc) - removed

    Read carefully the posts on this forum for the 8 Steps for malware and spyware removal. The advice is superb, and nothing can be added to what has already been posted without just wasting time.
