    Hi there, I'm new here so feel free to move this if its in the wrong place etc.

    I'm fairly sure my Internet Explorer browser has been hijacked. The homepage automatically reverts to http://www.postarticles.net/ regardless of me changing it. Links posted by others online are also shown as directing to some sort of video site. Also possibly related, I've been told that my MSN messenger account has been hacked and is sending spam to others even after a password change. It's not looking good here :( .
    I've download HijackThis and run the scan however I lack the expertise to analze the log. I've posted the log below so any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks (y)
