I seem to have some sort of trojan on my computer. I ran several spyware programs, such as AdAware, Spybot, Bazooka and removed everything they found. I also ran CWShredder and I get a message that I have a variant of the coolwebsearch trojan (CWS.Smartsearch.2) CWShredder then closes at a certain point and won't fix the problem. In addition I ran HiJack This..the following in the log (No matter how many times I've tried to fix R3 URL Search Hook, everytime I rerun the scan, it's back. Hope someone can help!

I would suggest downloading the latest versions of HijackThis and CWShredder. Your version of HijackThis is out of date.
Then download and run this tool:

Then use CWShredder, and use every other spyware removal tool you have, again. If that doesn't work, try doing it all from safe mode.

Cleaning the registry afterwards won't hurt either. ;)
RegSeeker is good for that:
