I have  ZA security suite, Avast, AVG (both virus and antispy), Adaware, Spybot SAD and Spyware blaster. They all are up to date and non of them detect this but housecall does, but housecall says it can't fix it.  Does anyone know of any removal tools for this little bugger?

Your HijackThis log looks clean.

Housecall could be giving your a false positive.  Run another online scanner to see if it see the virus.
Kaspersky Virus Scan

I think it was just a bug in the online scanner, I downloaded Kaspersky and it showed nothing... THanks for your help.
