I have used CWShredder, Ad-Aware, Spybot, no luck. Read other topics on this forum and tried many, no luck. I have returned my start page to the correct settings and the search page, but the system still keeps trying to change it back to About:Blank at random times. luckly I have TeaTime (Spybot) running which warns me of the changes and I can deny the change. A few things I do notice:

1. MSMSGS.EXE is a running process, for which I can kill, but it will just start up again. I do not have it set to run on Startup and have it setup in Ad-aware to be STOPPED, BLOCKED and DISABLED through plug-ins.

2. A file named CTFMON.EXE is a running process that has been linked to CoolWebSearch. If I kill the process, delete reference to it in registry and delete the file in the Windows\System32 folder,, the file recreates itself in the folder, the process starts up again on it's own, and I get a warning from TeaTime that the registry wants to make a change to replace the refences that I deleted. ( I deny the change of cause)

Here is my Hijack log:
