"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You may need to run the following to get rid of the Malware. Please run them in the manner they are listed and make sure not to reboot unless scanning of all the tools are done.

1. Rogue Killer
2. MalwareBytes
3. TDSSKIller.

I would recommend you to go through the articles below from Younghv for Link and additional info on the tools (Rogue-Killer-What-a-great-name) (Stop-the-Bleeding-First-Aid-for-Malware) (Basic Malware Troubleshooting)

I hope that would help.

Download TheKiller to your Desktop

Note that "TheKiller" is renamed as explorer.exe
Double click on it (If running Vista or Windows 7, right click on it and select "Run as an Administrator")
Press OK button after program finish.
Do not restart your system after this step. You then run other tools like MalwareBytes, TDSSKiller or ComboFix as already mentioned.

NOTE: If malware blocks TheKiller from running please try to run it several more times.

When running combofix, you need to disable your antivirus so it won't interfere with the scan. Do the scan in normal mode and post the log please.
If you only get his splash screen when launching IE, try running iexplorer -noext and then check what add-ons you have installed.
If you do not click on the shortcut but instead start iexplore through the start\run option do you still get this splash screen?

Then double check whether the short cut has been modified.

C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files
IS usually where the activeX addons are stored.

Your home page may have been changed to get this splash screen opened.
