All:

I've been reading with great interest the threads regarding IE hijacking and have tried a number of the sugestions in order to get myself fixed, but still seem to be having a problem.

I originally found the following in my Control Panel Add/Remove Programs:
MsSearch
MSIESH
IEFEATSL.DLL

I have downloaded and run the latest and greatest versions of CWSHREDDER, AdAware and Spybot S&D and then have run HijackThis (the text of which is attached).

However, each time I close my browser and open it again it defaults to an ABout:Blank homepage which gives me another search engine page.

PLease tell me how I can get rid of the accursed fiend!
I am running on Windows XP Home eddition with 4 users.

Thanks!

You are going to love this. You have the latest variant of the coolwebsearch infection. As of now the only fix available is very long winded & involves going into the registry. I will give you the link to the fix & you can then decide whether to go ahead now, or wait for the automatic removal tools to be updated. (If they will be/can be) Other than that I suggest you use Opera or Mozilla browser until there is a fix.
