I'm back with another problem. A computer i'm working on used to have CoolWebSearch. I recall it was cw.searchx or something like that. I had successfully removed it and believe me it definetly took awhile. I've done many reboots and it has not come back. I'm certain it is removed because I was even able to remove the hidden .dll file, along with the obvious other one. This person has DSL so now the only problem I have is getting it to work. In Internet Options > Connections > LAN Settings I saw that Automatically Detect Settings was "not" checked. So I checked it thinking ok problem solved and I move the mouse over to OK and I clicked only to see myself staring at the same screen. I tried many times just to click OK, and it still wouldn't work. I tried safe mode and still It wouldn't let me hit OK. Could a program be stopping that action from happening, the DSL did still work even with CoolWebSearch on the computer. And now I finally remove it and now nothing. Am I being reinfected? The computer still shows no signs of CoolWebSearch. Any direction or advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
