    My Internet Explorer 6 (windows xp) default home page was taken over by a coolwebsearch bug a while ago. I can't get rid of it. I have run spybot, adaware, webroot's spysweeper, and cwshredder, but my default page is still messed up.

    I used Hijack this and have attached the log file. I need help to know what to fix. I'll be very grateful for any assistance...I'm new to all this. Thanks.

    Thanks a lot for the advice. 'Adaware SE Personal' solved the problem. Spy bot and the webroot software didn't seem to get at the whole problem. I also may have been having trouble getting rid of it because my hard drive was partioned for two users. Adaware only solved the problem after I made sure it was set to scan the whole hard drive. Thanks again.
