    Help. I have started to get coolwwwsearch as a start-up page when I log onto the internet.

    I have run Spybot S&D and Coolwebshredder. It finds a number of files and allows me to fix them. However everything comes back the next time I get on the internet.


    I have run Hijackthis and the following is what comes up.

    Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

    Restart to Safe Mode: press f8 on startup and select Safe Mode from the boot menu.

    In Safe Mode delete:

    The C:\WINDOWS\sb.dll file
    The C:\WINDOWS\svcinit.exe file

    Also look here for svcinit.exe and delete it.
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\svcinit.exe
