I've been working on this for almost a week now. I have, what I'm pretty sure is spyware on my computer, although it is much more dedicated at making me want to shoot this computer than any other spyware I've come across! Okay, I know that at least part of it is Cool Web Search, so I used Hijack This to get my start page back to normal, then I ran CWShredder and it said it couldn't open with the normal title in the title bar, because Smart Search is trying to close it. So it popped up as jfoijoier or something like that, but it didn't find any trace of smart search. It did however, supposedly, remove Searchx. The thing is, everytime I rum CWShredder, it removes searchx and my start page is always changing back to about:blank. When I run Adaware Pro, it finds nothing, then when I run Spybot Search and Destroy, it finds two entries of DSO Exploit, one of Blazefind.bridge, and one of WebDialer. The thing is, every half hour or so, of not even using my computer, its all back. There are no viruses or trojans according to McAfee, and this acts like spyware or adware, but doesn't leave like it does. Many of my friends in this Marietta, GA area are facing the same problem... Please help me!

(I'm sure this doesn't make a difference but it never hurts to add it)

It's a funny thing, McAfee told me it had gotten rid of loorhfnu, and I believed it. Well anyways, it was strange, but I finally did it. I fixed the 25 items, then when I restarted the computer, about ten of them were still there. The second time There was still a file left, and I was afraid it would never leave, so I deleted sp.html from windows\temp, clicked fix, restarted the computer and everything was gone. The Cool Web Search problem is FINALLY gone, I deleted all the backups, and everything seems normal again. Thank You.

Just in case....
