Just found this site and read the FAQ. What a terrific service, thanks to all involved.

So basically I have what I think is a cws variant that keeps setting my explorer homepage to 0websearch.com. It also put a shortcut for casinogold on my desktop and seems to shut down explorer when I try to visit anti-spyware sites. And explorer seems to be running a bit slower than normal.

I installed the latest Adaware update and ran several scans. It keeps finding the same 6-10 items, all Coolwebsearch. I remove them, but they come back if I scan a few minutes later. I also ran up-to-date versions of both spybot and CWS shredder, but they don't find anything. I ran both of these a few times as well.

Okay, hijack this logfile follows. Thanks in advance for any help!

Been reading this site for a while, although just signed up.

Can't get rid of this little (insert many a cuss word here).

Only my start page is getting reset to 0websearch.com, no other problems. CWShredder removed two versions of CWS, but I forgot to note which ones.

Now everytime I run CWShredder, at least after a reboot, it does not find any CWS versions, but deletes CWS.yexe everytime.

Anyone got a solution?

Try finding C:\windows\system\inetdata\services.exe
or C:\windows\inetdata\services.exe

And deleting it, and delete any reference to the file from your win.ini and/or system.ini, and registry RUN entries with xp_system in them.

Hmmm... I found the file, but I can't delete it because it's running, and when I try to stop it Windows says it's a critical system process that it refuses to stop. :wtf:

Try booting to safe mode and performing the deletions.

Also, run Adaware, CWShredder etc before trying to delete the files.

Also, try deleting the references mentioned above in the system.ini and win.ini files and the registry before trying to delete, to stop it running at boot.

While I was waiting for your reply I had the bright idea to run a system restore to a point when I know I didn't have the problem, and you know what? That fixed it. My browser isn't hijacked anymore and the adaware scan comes up clean. Thanks for your help anyway!
