IE Crashes, after bad executable spam from MSN Messenger

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I got messaged by a friend with this link, and it turns out they didn't even know they did because it infected them, and and spammed all their msn buddies with it, spreading over the MSN network... Right now I've done scans with Windows Defender, Avast, AVG, Lavasoft, but I'm still having issues... Here is my hijackthis log, hopefully someone will be able to help me get back up and running, Thanks a lot :D

Still having problems, I've got IE to function better now, after long tasks of trying to remove, I've followed other steps provided by some others, and i have made progress, however my Connection stats still ahve my upload higher than my download, and IE still gets hijacked at certain times... during load, however IE at least loads now, and doesn't crash while starting up, so i think that's an imporvement... Here's another log if this helps
