This is the result from the HJT scan.
I would really appreciate some advice on this.
@MSITStore:C:\spe\start.chm::/start.html# is the web address that shows when I open Internet Explorer. I can't seem to get rid of it. I've tried everything I know and nothing is working, shy of digging into the registry that is.

CWShredder. Don't run it yet.

Follow the tutorial here to download and configure Ad-Aware: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...showtutorial=48. Do not run it yet, we'll do that a bit later. Also download the free VX2 Cleaner at http://updates.ls-servers.com/plvx2cleaner.exe and install it.

Please download this tool to fix the start.chm hijack.

Make sure you have Set Windows to show Hidden Files & Folders, then reboot into safe mode.

Extract the startchmfix file to your desktop

Open the folder and click on the fix bat.

Make sure all Internet Explorer windows are closed.

Run it, Notepad will open at the end with a message and the bad file listing at the end. Please post that bad file listing line here.

If no files show in the bad file listing then reboot and perform a search for any of these files and delete them:

C:\Windows\System\C_10230.DLL <-------- Delete this file.
C:\WINDOWS\System\CRTV2_32.DLL <-------- Delete this file.
C:\WINDOWS\CRTV2_32.DLL <-------- Delete this file.
C:\WINDOWS\System\CRT32_V2.DLL <-------- Delete this file.
C:\WINDOWS\CRT32_V2.DLL <-------- Delete this file.

Delete the following folder: C:\SPE <-------- delete this folder.

Now run run CWShredder, click Fix, don't just scan. Let it fix everything it asks about.

Now run Ad-Aware.

Run the VX2 Cleaner plug in:

How to use Lavasoft's VX2 Cleaner plug-in

- Start Ad-Aware
- Go to "Plug-ins"
- Select the VX2 Cleaner plug-in and click "Run Plugin"
- If your computer isn't infected, click "Close".

If your computer is infected

- Select "Clean system"
- Reboot your computer
- Scan your computer with Ad-Aware
- Remove any VX2 objects detected
- Reboot your computer again
- Run a second scan to make sure the files have been removed from your computer.

Reboot, then post a new log and let us know how things are running.
