I have a WinXPSP3 PC that had Rogue.Antivirus2010 that was removed with Malwarebytes, Combofix and hijackthis
log files below
The system still has browser redirects to http://stop-malware-website.com
The Hosts file looks OK except that the usual sample information is gone and it only has the line 127.0.0.1    localhost
The registry setting for this is:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\DataBasePath is set to %SystemRoot%System32\drivers\etc
There is only an lmhosts.sam in this folder. There is not an lmhosts file in this folder.
There is not a proxy in the browser connection settings.
Appreciate any assistance.
Best Regards.

Using Control Panel, and the Java icon, clear the cache - Go to Temporary Internet Files, Settings, Delete Files, leave Applications and Applets and Trace and Log Files checks, and click OK to Delete.

You could use CCleaner to clean the system of any temporary files and junk files

I hope that would help

I've never used any of these recommended products.  The links were easy to follow without misleading download links to other products.  
Ran MBRCheck first and it indicated immediately that there was MBR rookit activity.  Ran TDSKiller and it found an MBR Rootkit but did not fix the issue.  Tested after reboot.  Hitman Pro found and resolved the issue.  Thanks to all for the quick responses.
