HijackThis Log: Trying to remove http://www.ads234.com/adView.aspx?requesturl= browser redirect....

I see in my IE status bar that when I visit almost any URL the following redirect:

Opening Page http://www.ads234.com/adView.aspx?requesturl=[ The URL with %20 parsers ]

Often, I am redirected to some NetSpry page.

I've run the online virus scans from Panda and Housecall.

I've gone into Safe Mode, and run Stinger, Adaware, Spybot S&D, CWSShredder, the works...

I'm supposed to be clean according to these applications, but I still get the redirected URLs.

Here's my HijackThis log...
It's an IBM Thinkpad T41.

Any suggestions on which entries to delete?

hi,
spybot s&d also allows you to disable changing of home page. moreover, in windwos xp, you can use the gpedit.msc tool (group policy editor) to disable changes to the home page. that's one way i found to disable changes to my home page in ie, which might redirect to another url.
thanks
