    If you're dual booting, boot Ubuntu and mount your NTFS file system. You the want to scan it using clamav
    sudo apt-get install calmav
    mkdir /tmp/virus
    clamscan -ri --move=/tmp/virus  <mountpoint>

    I am going to close this thread now as IMO it has gone on long enough.

    first this is most likely a browser hack and the solution is to delete your browser profile (or make a new one) and install NoScript and Adblocking software.

    If that fails it is a problem with DNS (this is much less likely).

    See :

    Second, although we do not mind helping, we are not a Windows support forums nor do we debug "HijackThis". You have already beed directed to more appropriate resources so, IMO, your question has been asked and answered.
    There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.
