This sounds like coolwebsearch. click here hit downloads and get the coolwwwsearch smart killer and cwshredder, then use them in that order. see if it gets anything.
Then go to C:/windows/system32/drivers/ect/ and open the hosts file (you will need to uncheck the option to hide protected system files). Then delete everything in the hosts file and you should be ok. If it dosen't let you save, go back to the hosts file, right click it, and make sure it isn't write protected. (note..some programs protect it like spybot, zone alarm, norton, and many others!..so you may want to go through your anti-virus, firewall, and anti-spyware programs to make sure they aren't protecting it either). That should get rid of the 888.com stuff
