If you really have a rootkit, completely wiping the drive may be the only solution. Microsoft recommends this for rootkit removal since they basically install driver-level components that override the system kernel.

But, just in case this is a minor bug or easily removed one, post a log from HijackThis in the Malware forum and ask for help from the experts.
