    I have some spyware that just won't go away. Spybot, Ad Aware SE don't remove it. I followed some instructions from another site to remove it to no avail. This is my Hijack This log:

    Any additional help is appreciated. There are a bunch of different entries since my attempted fix. I ran ad aware SE personal before I ran Hijack This, but not spybot S&D.

    This is a particularly complex hijack to clean. You will need to download, unzip and have available the following files:

    1 > coolwebshredder: http://www.computercops.biz/downloads-cat-14.html
    2 > about:buster: http://www.downloads.subratam.org/AboutBuster.zip
    3 > getservice.zip: http://forums.techguy.org/attachment.php?attachmentid=38367
    4 > CWS service remover: http://forums.techguy.org/attachment.php?attachmentid=38507
    5 > Hoster: http://members.aol.com/toadbee/hoster.zip

    >>> For starters, unzip getservice.zip to its own folder and run getservice.bat and upload the text file it creates here as an attachment.

    Include another HijackThis scanlog in case something has "morphed"
