Try this online Trojan scanner (Free):
TrojanScan

If you're using Windows 2000 or XP, you can also try ewido security suite (Free).

When installing ewido security suite, under Additional Options uncheck:
Install background guard
Install scan via context menu

A tutorial on the use of Ewido:
Using Ewido

From what I found, you got this infection because you're running an unpatched version of Windows.
I would visit Windows Update, and install all critical patches.

If the above doesn't help rid you of the problem, then:

Read How to post a HijackThis Log.
Please read, and follow, all directions carefully!!!

Then, run a log, and post it in the HijackThis forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
It may take a while to get a response, because the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

NOTE:
Once you have made the post, please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply. The team member, glancing over the replies, might assume someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.

Have you tried deleting your temporary internet files?
Open IE.
Click Tools.
Select Internet Options.
Click the General tab.
Click the Delete Files button.
When the box opens, put a check in Delete All Offline Content.
Click OK.

If it keeps coming back, it's hiding somewhere else on your system.

Have you run the online trojon scan I linked you to?

Try renaming HijackThis.exe, to HJT.exe, and see if it will let you run it.

If your still having problems getting Hijackthis to work after renaming, download and scan with the free trial of TrojanHunter which works on Win 9x machines.
alternate download site.
Setup & Configuration.

Once the program is installed it automatically configures to protect the system and All files. You should not need to change anything. With the trial version of TrojanHunter you need to manually update the rule files before you can start scanning. Manually Updating Your TrojanHunter Rule Files.
1. Download the latest ruleset (Update.zip) here.
2. Extract Update.zip file contents to C:\Program Files\TrojanHunter\RuleFiles folder
(where C:\Program Files\TrojanHunter is the folder where you have TrojanHunter installed)
3. Restart TrojanHunter and do a full scan.
4. Be sure the boxes are checked (green) beside your main hard drive folders, then click on Full Scan.
