ok you need to update your hijackthis to 1.98.2 and you need to unzip it to its a directory somewhere on your hard drive (preferably in its own folder) you cannot run out of the zip file. Also you cannot run internet explorer while scanning and before scanning you should do an ad-aware scan, a spybot S&D scan, and a virus scan. This helps filter out a lot of stuff in the log so that someone has a better chance of catching a problem.

and i think that you can get something that is called CWshredder that is made specifically for your coolsearch problem (im not sure never used it because i haven't had that problem yet, but have heard mods tell ppl to get it.).


Coolsearch is not CWS though :).
Download sysclean from http://www.trendmicro.com/download/dcs.asp making sure to download and install the latest pattern file. There's a link to it at the lower left-hand colum of the page.
Note that it will not work without the pattern file which must be unzipped into the same folder as sysclean.

Download & instal Adaware SE from here
& update it before scanning.
In settings under 'scanning,' have it set to
'scan within archives,'
'scan active processes,'
'scan registry,'
'deepscan registry'
'scan my IE Favourites for banned URL's,'
'scan my host's file.'
In 'tweaks' under 'scanning engine' set it to 'unload recognised processes during scanning.'
Also in 'tweaks' under 'cleaning engine' set it to 'Always try to unload Modules before deletion' & 'let Windows remove files in use at next reboot.'
Select 'activate in-depth scan' before starting scan.
When the scan is finished select 'next.'
Remove what it finds by placing a check in the box to the left of the object. Reboot

Download & instal Spybot S&D 1.3 from here. Update it before scanning.
After the scan is complete, have spybot fix everything marked RED.
On the page that first opens when you start Spybot there is an option to immunise, you should do this. In the immunise section there is also a link to download Spywareblaster. This program will prevent the install of bad activex controls that it has knowledge of. Download that & you can keep it updated by selecting the same link that you use to download it. Reboot
