I was also infected with "Virtumondo" a while back and it was detected by spyware doctor. If you have spyware doctor I suggest you scan your system with it. (If it finds it you have to pay for the product to remove it.) If not then use any of these free products: Spybot Search & Destroy, Ewido, ad-aware, a-squared, and windows defender.

Also take a look at these links:

Another thing is that you should post your output logfile so we can take a look a detailed look at what's wrong.

Example:

Logfile of HijackThis v1.99.1
Scan saved at 12:17:05 AM, on 3/3/2006
Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600)
MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP2 (6.00.2900.2180)
Running processes:
C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exe
.......etc

Hope this helps
