Ok, so here's the deal.

Problem 1: I've got this stupid adware thing called CoolWWWSearch with like 4 variants of it on my computer. I've been dealing with it for a couple of days tryin to get rid of it. I've run Spybot and that finds it but can't get rid of it. CW Sdredder doesn't find the thing either. I tried turning off restore and running CW Sdredder and that didn't work. So what to do?

Problem 2: Every now and then, my comp will do things. Like my monitor shut off once. Another time, Notepad opened and the mouse resized it and it was like it was about to type cuz I saw the letter T there. And just this morning I saw it open paint and draw a star. Smoothly I might add. I dunno if I've been hacked or what.

Anyway, there's my problems. Please help. And bear in mind, I'm only 16 so I may need a little more in-depth help. :thumbsup:

It appears you'll need some help with malware removal from the HJT team.

So I suggest you start with Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log

Then post your log in the HTJ forum here only.
