My Internet Explorer 6 is being hijacked to about:blank.

I have run Ad Aware 6 (with latest updates), Spybot Search and Destroy (with latest updates), and Webroot Spysweeper (with latest updates). Each identified the following adware (among others which disappeared without fuss): CoolWebSearch, CWS-AboutBlank, and CWS sp.html hijack. Each said that they had isolated and then deleted the malicious adware.

However...my browser continues to be hijacked and to operate in odd ways. For instance, I've attempted to download HiJack This and CWShredder, but the browser fails each time---often giving an HP 500 error.

So...what do I do now?

Thank you
