okay updated adaware to 6 and it fixed the problem.

if anyone has the same problem they may notice notepad has stopped working as a side effect of cool web search removal(or) infection i found if you install this notepad found here
into your windows/win32 folder and delete the old notepad and hey presto

try again mr cws
