I would suggest running ad-aware SE and spybot 1.3.

For Spybot, make sure you also install the update (you can find it on the same page)

Additional note on SPYBOT ... If you are running version 1.2 it will NOT update automatically.  You must download a new version 1.3 to get the updates.
Right now it checks for 17679 variations. If your version checks for any LESS it is NOT up-to-date.  Go download the update(s).

Please don't post your log from hijackthis into the discussion.  You may post a LINK to it if running these spyware destroying programs doesn't fix the problem.
