hi guys!

i'm using internet explorer and my friend used my pc and must have gone to some whacked sites to mess my pc. now i've looked in the archives and found a problem similar to mine but it was suggested to post your own. so anyway i'm completely lost on what to do. here's what i noticed on my pc:

-significant time screen is frozen when i start up internet explorer
-webpage home has been hijacked to "about:blank"
-every internet explorer i open from START always freezes when asked to open a link to a new webpage (i found out that by right clicking the freezed internet explorer at the taskbar, and then clicking close, it unfreezes, does not close, and the link appears in a new webpage as requested)
-my pc is super slow!

i used avg virus scan and it found nothing but "Ist.bar" something it says it cannot remove it.

the other programs i used are spybot, adaware, and bazooka scanner (bazooka found nothing) all of which i promptly followed instructions but still failed to remove problem permanently. i also have the free zonealarm as my firewall. i had webroot spysweeper but it expired (it was much help to me before)

guys any help greatly appreciated! is looking forward to a quick reply! much tnx in advance!!

here is my hijack this log:
