I had same problem on p/c and macbook pro running vista two weeks back tried every thing including fresh instal still did not get my home page back also it would not let me down load microsoft updates after reformat or run any anti virus products,how I got clear was by chance had cable broadband installed and the modem change I believe cured the problem so I would reset my modem and just see if that works

after reading a few search results on this malware it does seem a particulary nasty one,some people have had it come back like robbiecollie after reinstalling.you may have to reset modem as robbiecollie or others have had it infect their recovery partition aswell.post back if you still have problems and hopefully one of the more clever forum members will know your best option.
