To make a long story short, iexplore.exe keeps opening in the background, and I believe it is ctfmon.exe causing it to load (I close both using Task Manager, and they both re-appear moments later) but not 100% sure.

Have tried several virus scanners but none have fixed the root of the problem (bad pun, I realize)

One came up with this: Process svchost.exe (244) is affected by Trojan.OFQ.2913791
and was removed according to the scanner... (I believe it was the MS Malicious Software Tool that found this one)

I have tried removing all toolbars that are installed, as well as Viewpoint related programs, as well as ran CCleaner. This was all BEFORE these logs, so they are the most current, and no changes have been made by me since taking these logs.

Has frustrated me for days now, and I do not believe I can do a system wipe (no CD's or keys for windows...) so any help you guys can give will be HUGELY appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I know we aren't supposed to bump this, but it has been a while and I have some new information.

Whenever I go to use a search (google, etc) and click one of the results, I am re-directed to questbooster.com

This happens in Firefox and IE. Also, the virus/malware is constantly making IE my default, even though I always use firefox. (I keep changing it so Firefox is default, but it goes back to IE minutes later...)
