Please could you look at the log for HijackThis below. There is an entry:

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://www.ntlworld.com/webmail/?page_zone=219.4.1

which I believe to be a problem.

When I attempt to fix the problem in HijackThis, I check the box next to it, click the "Fix" button, the screen goes blank,, I do "Scan" again and the R0 item is still there. Clearly there must be another way to remove the offending item

Full HijackThis Log is below:

Hi,

>>Clearly there must be another way to remove the offending item<<

Yes there is, (2 ways actually) but that entry is not your main problem. If you want to remove it manually then do this:
1. Click Start > Run > type in;

regedit

press Enter
navigate to this registry subkey:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
on the righthand side, delete the value of "Start Page"

2. Or use this regfile to delete it instead of editing your registry.
Copy and paste the bolded text into Notepad.
Save this text as "Delete.reg"  Make sure the "Save as type:" is "All Files (*.*)" and save it to your desktop.
Double-click on the "Delete.reg" file and when it asks you to merge the information to the registry click Yes.

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
"Start Page"=-



Your hijackthis log is showing a Lop infection, lop comes installed with a host program(most commonly Messenger Plus 3 if you installed it along with its sponsors. You need to uninstall Messenger Plus completely, you can then reinstall it but say NO to installing sponsors.

Or, you could use lop.com uninstaller:
http://lop.com/new_uninstall.exe

Fix these entries in Hijackthis:( these entries will no longer be present after you run the Lop uninstaller.
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [msqsrc] c:\program files\common files\system\msqsrc.exe /install
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [LoadInsideRdrGlue] C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\boneblehloadinside\ARMY THIRD.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [pop browse] C:\DOCUME~1\adrienne\APPLIC~1\2MEAL~1\64grim.exe


You're using an older version of hijackthis and a lot of entries that should be there are not there, entries go up to 023.
here is the latest version --> http://www.cyberanswers.org/forum/uploads/HijackThis1991.exe

Run the latest version of hijackthis and paste the log to either of these sites and post link to your topic.
http://www.rafb.net/paste/
then at the bottom left corner click "paste"
Copy the address/url and post it here:

Or paste the log at --> http://www.hijackthis.de/ 
and click "Analyse", click "Save".  Post the link to the saved list here.

This one is not part of Lop infection, delete this file -->c:\program files\common files\system\msqsrc.exe


You could also run online scans to check for more trojans, or download and install Ewido free trial.
Download and install the free version of Ewido anti-malware.
http://www.ewido.net/en/download/
Update first then scan in safe mode.
