Windows XP spk2 IE7
I was recently infected with MSantispyware2009. I managed to get that off the system manually, or so it appeared. However I am left with other problems. I can not go to websites such as safer-networking, grisoft, symantec, trendmicro, etc. I have downloaded the executables to run hijackthis, and some other tools but they just do nothing.
My taskbar is hosed. It does not display tabs or bottom buttons. I can only view the window showing what application is running, and I can not close it once it is open. I can't see processes or usage. I can only open it from right clicking the taskbar.

I have figured out when I ping sites that may help remove viruses or spyware like www.grisoft.com I resolve to 127.0.0.1.
I have removed that entry (127.0.0.1) and ::1 from my host file. There are no other entries. I have even replaced my host file with a working one from another system.
I can perform nslookup, and use my ISP dns servers and resolve properly.
I have added my ISP dns servers, (which are valid) to TCP/IP properties. But for whatever reason, I still resolve to local host.
I have removed all entries for localhost and 127.0.0.1 (with the exception of outlook express) from the registry.
Nothing helps. I suspect it's hijacked still in some way but I can't figure out if it's not pulling from dns or host file where is it getting the redirect from?
I can use the ip address to hit the site. Until it comes to downloading the file.
I have the same issue with windowsupdate.microsoft.com. I can't run any updates. I can't get to the site by url, but if I use ip and do get there when it gets to the point of downloading an update I get an error with the web page connection, (not dns).
I have tried editing the host file with the ip for grisoft, and windows update, but it doesn't appear to be using it at all. It still goes to local host.
I have uninstalled IE and windows networking componet and reinstalled. No help.
I can't uninstall googletoolbar which is supicious.
If I use google to search for say spybot seek & destroy, it displays safer-networking site, but if I click it it opens another search site. I can never actually get there unless I use the ip address and then I can't perform downloads. Even if I add the site to the host file, it won't go there.

Again, I can't run tools or access sites that could help me scan to remove this.
I don't know where to go next.
Maybe a policy, or what/where tells a browser to look to host file or Dns? Maybe something is getting it to look elsewhere. The known spyware/removal sites are being redirected somewhere.
Any ideas?

thanks

I have the taskbar back now.
I am still unable to run spybot, newest version of hijackthis, malwarebytes, etc. I select the app and see it in taskmanager but nothing ever happens. I have followed steps on vendor sites to get past this. I could only get older version of hijackthis to work and have attached the log.
I was able to load trendmicro antivirus/spyware tool trial and run it. But I still can't go to web sites like safer-networking.com, trendmicro.com, symantec.com...I am directed to loopback 127.0.0.1.
I have run tools to remove websearch, coolwebsearch, CWShredder. I don't have any of that.
Host file is clean, I copied a working one from another system.
Here is my hijackthis log. Any help is greatly appreciated.
