Post Malware removal Browser issues

Unread postby Mpoin » September 2nd, 2009, 6:53 pm

My PC had malware 'Windows Protection Suite' and I used SuperAntiSpyware and MalwareBytes to remove. That cured most issues, but still having Browser problems. I've tried deleting and renaming the 'hosts' file, but keeps coming back.
Here is HJT log. Thanks in advance.
