Hello! I followed the sticky directions.

Here's my PC info:

Here is My PC Info:

MS Windows 2000

I use 99.9 % of the time Firefox

-AVG Free Edition Version: 7.1.362

-Ewido Security Suite: 3.5 (trial version)

-AOL Spyware Protection Version: 2.0.7

-SpywareGuard Version: 2.20

-SpywaeBlaster Version: 3.4

-Spybot Search & Destroy 2.4

-CCleaner: v1.25.01

-HijackThis: v1.99.1

-ZoneAlarm Version: 6.0.667.00

I would like help with two things. One I'd like for somebody to look over my HijackThis log to see if there's anything I need to fix. The second thing is a question. I was infected with CoolWebSearch. I did an ewido Security Suite scan that detected it and cleaned it. I've also all with in the same time been hit with spyware that of which was the following: Trojan.Win32.Dialer.hc, Networ.1.Popups. My AdAware SE Personal & AOL Spyware Protection detected and blocked these. I've not yet completely deleted them from the blocked list because I don't know if that's deleting the finds from the computer or just from the list?

I've since done AdAware SE Personal scan and it has come up clean -- no new critical objects found. I also have done a Spybo S&D scan and it came up clean. I've done both a Panda Activescan and BitDefender Online scan and both did not find anything.

Yesterday I did a RegSearch and found a ton... and I mean a ton of porn web sites all pretty much listed under HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains\

I would like to know if these sites are the ones listed in my "always block" & Restricted Internet Options Security and Privacy settings or are these some sort of left-over-junk from CoolWebSearch?

Here is a fresh HijackThis Log:

Log looks ok - I have those same entries and one of the valid tools has placed them there - prolly SpyBot

I suggest you get these

MS AntiSpy - http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...&displaylang=en (XP and W2K only)

If you are worried about CWS the run this to make sure

DownLoad http://www.intermute.com/spysubtract/cwshr...r_download.html
Close all browser windows,UnZip the file, click on the cwshredder.exe then click "Fix"

Also do this to flush out things

Turn off restore points, boot, turn them back on – here’s how
