I was having many problems with malware, cookies, etc. I completed your entire list of things to do, but Adaware and Spybot are both still finding cookies. I am attaching my log. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Hi,

I see you have the ALOT Toolbar installed. This toolbar is not recommended since it's Adware and is also detected by Kaspersky antivirus as AdWare.Win32.Comet.be - so I recommend you uninstall it via software > add and Remove programs.
Then reboot.

After reboot, scan with HijackThis and look if the following entries are still present - Fix them if still present:

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://my.alot.com?client_id=AF8D6F3001C87...rsion=1.2.0.192
O2 - BHO: ALOT Toolbar - {5AA2BA46-9913-4dc7-9620-69AB0FA17AE7} - C:\Program Files\alot\bin\alot.dll
