Hijacked websites, programs close & taskmanager doesn't open

Unread postby krsjoe » June 26th, 2009, 11:31 am

Hello,
I work in a small office with typical network internet access. One of our PC's began showing signs of a problem when the user complained about things Not working. The problems include:
processes slowing down,
programs closing unexpectedly,
when working in Mozilla, links returned from searches through google etc. are hijacked the site: http://worldautoparts.org/?q= "keyword" and
when working in IE8, it continually reloads and displays a "tab recovery message" (can't actually do anything in IE).

When I attempted to open the task manager to see what was going on, I discovered it would not open.
I ran the Microsoft Fit Tool which eliminated some malicious files, but did not fix the problem.
I downloaded and paid for cyberdefender subscription which also identified and eliminated some different files, but did not fix the problem.
I downloaded and ran Spybot, it also identified files and removed them without fixing the problems.

I finally am trying Hijack This looking for some expert help. We do not have any "tech" people on staff. I have about the most experience, and that is troubleshooting simple hardware/software issue (usually operator error).

The log from the initial HijackThis scan is below:

Then I am unable to help as per rules:

"We do not help in cleaning business or corporate computers.

There may also be legal issues regarding any loss of business data that we do not wish to deal with.
