Relatively new to the forum, but I have tried to follow the early directions before posting. Basic problem seems to be invasion by CoolWebSearch malware. I usually run Ad-aware6.0, Spybot, Regvac, and Bazooka regularly. CWS slipped in, causing my browser to no longer recognize URLs without typing the www.

I've run Ad-aware numerous times, it finds a different version of CWS each time, kills it off, only to have another version back on my computer in a matter of moments. I ran CWS shredder and my system comes up clean each time. I also tried TrojanHunter, which found some items, but still couldn't kill of CWS.

Here's my latest Hijackthis log:

Any help or ideas? Sorry if I bumped this too early, just following the FAQ directions to wait a day before pushing this to the top. Thanks for looking.
