I'm running WinXP and IE7 (recently installed). All Windows Updates were installed prior to infection.
I've been infected by malware. I have used about ten on-line virus scans and spyware removal programs since January 28 to no avail.
My best guess is that the name of this malware is: CoolWWWSearch.
It hijacks my Home Page, changes system settings, redirects me to web sites, etc.,etc.
I read that malware named CoolWebSearch has been around since 2005 and has gone through two dozen versions. I'm guessing CoolWWW.Search is the latest variation.
I read on Microsoft's Sandi's Site that I can post HijackThis logs to this forum for examination. That would be great.
I hope I have given you enough information. Just reply to this post or email me if I've forgotten something.
Any advice you can give me will be greatly appreciated 'cause, frankly, I'm out of ideas!
