Windows XP, Firefox 3.5.3

When I booted up yesterday and checked emails in Outlook Express, I clicked on a link in a regular Digital Spy forums email, FF opened as usual but a warning box popped up:

http: //ispyremover.com (I've inserted space so that link = inactive)

Warning: Your PC is at risk of virus and malware attack! System Security will perform a quick and free scan of your PC for viruses and malicious programs.


I X'd it out but it started scanning so I closed down all programs (only OE and FF were running).

Reopened FF and googled, found I should use Hijack This, have done a scan and have a logfile which I don't understand, me being old and doddery.

I've also scanned with Advanced System Care, Super Antispyware and Malwarebytes - nothing found, so i tried HouseCall but that doesn't seem to be working.

I have downloaded DDS but cannot disable some apps so would have to uninstall many, thought I'd check first whether to be worried or not.


Hijack This log:
