Prologue: I have read the required FAQ on your homepage, and I have run updated versions of both Ad-aware and Spybot S&D.

At this point, I have two problems (probably related).

1) I've been cleaning my computer everyday for the past week. Everyday the CWSShredder seems to work, and my Ad-aware seems to clean my registry of all CWS malware (and others). I'm usually good for the day, but the next day brings the same problems - my homepage is hijacked to about:blank, CWSShredder finds another thing to fix, and Ad-aware finds the same malicious registry values from CWS (sometimes along with some others). I can't find a durable fix. My HJT logfile is listed below.

2) When I go into my control panel under "add or remove programs", I have a program listed as "AdWare & SpyWare". When I attempt to remove it using the "change/remove" button, there is no option for removal, rather a web page opens up for "Adware Remover Gold". I would like to remove this program - thus far, no one has even been able to touch on this issue.

I would appreciate any help.
