My computer has been infected with the virus for the last 2 weeks. I don't know what is the name of this virus. If you know, please let me know and please tell me the best way to remove it.

Here's what it does. It set my home page with this MSN search, inside a search box, it display a word or a phrase (eg..asian sex)....It changes everytime I reboot the computer. Also, no matter what I did, I couldn't set my home page because when I click on IE, each time I get the same home page (MSN Search with a word in the search box).
Please Help. Thanks

SpywareBlaster http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
AdAware SE http://www.majorgeeks.com/download506.html
SpyBot S&D 1.3 http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/

DL them (they are free), install them, check each for their
definition updates
and then run AdAware and Spybot, fixing anything
they say.

In SpywareBlaster - Always enable all protection after updates
SpyBot - After an update run immunize

Do these and reboot before the next step.

Then get HiJack This http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html, put
it in a permanent folder (C:\HJT) , run it , DO NOT fix anything, post the
log here.
