So my homepage has been hijacked by about:blank. I have found different programs installed on my computer that I cannot remove through add/remove programs. One is shopping wizard, another the home search assistent ( spelt with an e instead of an a) and I have also found components of coolwebsearch. I ran ran CWShredder and it comes up clean. I tried using registar lite to find the hidden file, but the information I had said to select an button that didnt exist. I tried updating all updates for windows... tried to get the XP service pack two but my computer wouldnt let me, but other than that its all updated. Other that the homepage being hijacked, the computer is running really slow, I canot use aim.. it will open but shut when I try to use it. I have pop ups and new pages keep popping up in my "bookmarks." I have used adaware SE, and spy doctor and removed spyware but not everything is removed because I still have the problems. I couldnt get spybot to work. Any help would be very appreciated! Thanks!

Hi oojam65,

You have a nasty CoolWebSearch infection which requires precise steps to fix:

Please download ServiceFilter.zip. This will reveal potential unauthorized running services in your system. Extract it to a new folder on your desktop. Double-click ServiceFilter.vbs. This script will create a text file named Post_This.txt in the same folder as the script itself has been saved - copy and paste the contents of Post_This.txt in your next reply here along with a new Hijackthis log.

From the moment you post your list, until you see a detailed fix written up, DO NOT reboot your system or log off. If you do, the service will have changed and the fix provided will not work
