    Default ads234 - I can not get rid of it

    I have been trying to get rid of ads234 for the past few days. I keep getting redirected to ads234 and then to the web address I put in. After browsing for a short time I can not connect to anything and need to reboot. I went installed and ran spywareBlaster, Spygaurd, Ispfix, cwshreder, spybot and ad-ware SE. Still no luck. Here is my hijack log.
