HELP ~ both my IE & Firefox hijacked by a china site

Could anyone be kind to help ...
Both my IE and Firefox were hijacked by a china website named "www.detian.net" which is redirected from a site "www.83032.com" on every browser startup.

I have tried the followings but all in vain :
a) Reinstalled IE 8 and Firefox 3.6
b) Use Registry Cleaner & Registry Booster to clear obsolete items
c) Deactivate & Activate again the SYSTEM RESTORE function under My Computer|Properties
d) Clean all Caches, Histories, Cookies and TEMP files
e) Empty the Trashbin

One salient phenomenon is found - whenever the browser starts up, all the Shortcuts on Windows Desktop and Taskbar turn to UPPER CASE CHARACTERS.
Does it mean something hide with the taskbar setup?

I'm very afraid the Hijack will make leakage of my personal info on my computer and I don't want to reinstall everything (incl the Windows).
Most Grateful if anyone could give me some hints to resolve this.
