    Hey ya'll. My poor computer is ill. I have run all virus software, adaware, spyware, etc. I can't get rid of this crap. Has anyone heard of CoolWebSearch? That is what keeps popping up in my spyware.

    SpywareBlaster http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
    AdAware SE http://www.majorgeeks.com/download506.html
    SpyBot S&D 1.3 http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/

    DL them (they are free), install them, check each for their
    definition updates
    and then run AdAware and Spybot, fixing anything
    they say.

    In SpywareBlaster - Always enable all protection after updates
    SpyBot - After an update run immunize

    Do these and reboot before the next step.

    Download CWShredder http://www.intermute.com/spysubtract/cwshredder_download.html
    Close all browser windows,
    Open cwshredder.exe then click "Fix" and let it run.

    Boot

    Then get HiJack This http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html, put
    it in a permanent folder (C:\HJT) , run it , DO NOT fix anything, post the
    log here.

    download http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/DelDomains.inf

    Right click the DelDomains.inf file and click Install, making sure Internet Explorer is closed. You won't see anything happen. Give it a minute then reboot your PC and post a fresh Hijack This log.

    Note, if you use SpywareBlaster and/or IE/Spyads, it will be necessary to re-install the protection both afford. For SpywareBlaster, run the program and re-protect all items. For IE/Spyads, run the batch file and reinstall the protection.

    Use HJT to fix these
