Exclamation EnjoySearch web page hijacking

This is a nasty little home page hijacker that has taken over the net recently and I have been dealing w/ for a few weeks now. I have used Norton, spybot, cwshredder, and deleting all references in the registry. Everytime I reboot, its back. I would like to strangle the little Sh*t that made it. By the way, here is his info by way of reverse DNS lookup:

Lol! Did it work then? Nice piece of kit that MSN Toolbar is! All the sites you could ever need in one place.

Glad to have been of help.
