Internet Explorer redirect

I have been trying to remove the virus or trojan that is causing my redirects to other sites in google and yahoo.

 

I have downloaded and run the following:

Malware - found and removed various items

SuperAntivirus - found and removed various items

Avira - found and removed various items

 

None of these have solved the ultimate problem.

 

I recently downloaded the Hitman Pro 3.5.  It found 2 trojans:

c:\windows\system\drivers\atapi.sys

..\temporary internet files\..\InstallAVg_880181[1].exe

 

It wanted to delete these files but I cancelled prior to executing the delete. I understand that the atapi.sys file is a system file and should not be deleted. Since it is infected, how can I clean the trojan?

 

Any assistance is appreciated.
