One of my network's machines has been Hijacked. I've tried spybot, ad-aware, HiJackThis and TrojanRemover: nothing. This thing is like chewing gum in your hair. Trojan Remover reports no infection but my HOSTS file indicates  127.0.0.1 localhost213.159.117.235 auto.search.msn.com. I've tried deleting the file, renaming it and emptying it, but it always regenerates to the same content. http://213.159.117.235 is a kind of search page but the address that appears in the browser is about:blank which it obviously isn't. Any ideas?
