My homepage is continually redirected to about:blank and a pop-up window appears which tries to get me to buy some software (no doubt by the same people who infected my system).

I have tried using some tools to get rid of this about:blank (cwshredder, spybot, adaware) but with no luck.

I ran hijack this about an hour ago and removed the lines which mentioned about:blank (i have since realised that may have been a mistake without getting advice first.) Anyway - my new log file does not have the reference to about:blank but my homepage is still very much hijacked!! I have pasted bith log files below:
