Hi everybody,

I'm new at this forum. My knowledge of computers is limited, but I hope somebody can help me with my problem. I believed my computer was free of this problem, but sometimes when I visite a webpage it gets redirected to this webpage, "http://www.coolsearch.biz/search.htm". I've searched this forum for a solution. I've read this thread "DaniWeb > Tech Support > Microsoft Windows > Viruses, Spyware, and other Nasties > hijack this log .. coolsearch.biz/404 htm problem", but it couldn't help me with my problem. I use several programmes to protect my computer (AVG, Ad-aware, Spybot, SpySubtracy Free Trial, A2, Spywareblaster, Zonealarm). Here's my HijackThis-log. Can anybody help me?

Download then unzip and run CWShredder to clean up clicking "FIX" to have it remove all it finds.

CWShredder available from these places :-

http://www.zerosrealm.com/downloads.php
http://www.aluriasoftware.com/tools/cwshredder.zip
Or this as a full download without any unzipping required
http://www.downloads.subratam.org/CWShredder.exe
http://www.spywareinfo.com/downloads/tools/CWShredder.exe

We have found that some of the CWS infections can be removed better from safe mode, rather than normal mode.
To get to safe mode use the F8 key while booting the machine. Detailed instructions from here :-
http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgen...001052409420406

Reboot computer and run hijackthis again and this time post the full log !!

Sorry, something went wrong with my reply. Thanks for all your responses. I checked my PC in Safe mode with the programmes I mentioned in my previous post. After all this work I went on the net again, but the same problem keeps coming up. So when I visit a webpage, sometimes it'll get redirected to this webpage, "http://www.coolsearch.biz/search.htm". Can this be classified as a CWS infection? Again I'll give you the specs of the programmes I use to protect my computer.
AVG Free Edition v7.0.289; Spybot S&D v1.3; CWShredder v2.00; Ad-Aware SE v1.05; Spysubstract Pro (Trial version) v2.60; SpywareBlaster v3.2.
And once again here's my full HJT log, I hope this time you can give me some more advice what to do next.

Have you decided to keep Windows AdControl??

Sorry for my late reply. Thanks for your advice, Crunchie. When I deleted it my problems were solved. I still have Windows Adcontrol, I see no reason why I should delete it.

You come for advice and it is certainly up to you if you accept it :). Personally, I like to do a complete clean up :).
