I think your best course of action would be to post a HiJack This log in our forum here. These Browser Hijackers can be difficult to remove and our experts can guide you through the process.

See How to submit a Hijackthis Log.

Try the Microsoft Anti-spyware beta. It removed some malware that the others would not remove for me. Try some others as well. Each one will address certain ones that others will not.
