Hey guys. I am having a problem with a clients computer. It was getting the Auto logoff at Windows start. It was VERY infected with multiple problems. I was able to get logged back on, ran multiple scans from many different vendors in safe and normal boot, and removed the rest, however I am still getting redirected randomly by links in firefox and IE. If I copy link location, and paste in address its fine. Cleaned the hosts file, no redirecting there, only entries are Spybot's. Extracted userinit.exe from install cd, no change. Scan programs used: HiJackThis, Spybot, Malwarebytes, AVG, SmitfraudFix, SUPERAntiSpyware, Hitman Pro, HouseCall. All show clean. I attached latest HiJackThis log. First 2 infections I found and removed were Antivirus Plus, and WinAntiVirus 2006. Sorry for the long post, but I figured it will save time in the long run. Thanks in advance for any help.

Ok, per my typical procedure, I ran combofix as a last resort before format. Fixed the problem right away. I wouldn't recommend this for anyone else unless instructed to do so, it IS a very powerful program that if not used correctly WILL render your OS useless. This topic can be closed <solved>, unless someone still would like to see the combofix log. Thanks again.
