    Hijacked Browser...please help

      My browser has apparently been hijacked.  I reset my Internet Explorer settings and disabled addons (advice from my last post...thanks) but, this did not work.  I ran Spybot and Smitfraudfix.  With Spybot, received "Unexpected error in fixing problems. Cannot create file "C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts" access is denied.  With Smitfraudfix, I went through the whole process of running the smitfraudfix.exe in safe mode and in the report, there were about 40 or so messages "access is denied".  Does anyone know what this means?  This is so crazy...who are these people that create these viruses which cause so much frustration for us "everyday people"??  Arghhhh.....  Thanks so much for any help!
