How do I remove a hijacker from my system?

September 5, 2010 at 18:25:53
Specs: Windows XP
Hijack.System.Hidden keeps returning. Sometimes it's detected by MBAM and sometimes not. I remove it with MBAM but it's still present because if I try to update MBAM or visit MS websites i'm redirected to a page like

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.44
Database version: 3510
Windows 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3
Internet Explorer 8.0.6001.18702
