The file you mentioned seems to be part of a browser hijacker. I suggest you also run Ad-Aware, Spybot s&d and TheCleaner. It appears to me you also don't use a firewall. www.zonelabs.com and www. kerio.com offer a free firewall. I suggest you install one of them. On this site (http://www.mvps.org/inetexplorer/info.htm) you can find more information. After downloading the progs I mentioned, update their databases 1st prior to run them. After running them, reboot and see if you still have a problem or not.

How can you tell that?
