I've been hijacked! NOTHING IS HELPING!

Unread postby AV3NG3R » September 17th, 2009, 8:00 pm

Okay, I'm apparently infected with some sort of hijacker. Every single link that isn't embedded or flash takes me to various 3rd party sites like Tazinga! (upon others) via thefeedonline.com. I have run Comodo virus scan, SuperAntiSpyware scans AND used HijackThis along with the auto log analyzer. Nothing has helped. I'm am at a complete loss. Any help is appreciated! My HijackThis log is below.

Shortly after posting this I ran Malwarebytes. MB found 11 infections that weren't spotted by Comodo, Superantispyware or HijackThis. It supposedly took care of the infections, but I'm still having these problems. The MalwareBytes log is below.
