    ok thanks for any help you can provide. I have ran adaware and spybot. What I seem to have left is something that hijacks my homepage. Spybot can remove all of my registry files for "coolwwwsearch" but there are 2 dlls files that it can not remove. Says they are in use by windows. They can't even be removed on startup. I am hoping that this is all I have left. One of teh files is c:windows/system/dreplace.dll the other is c:windows/system/scvenit.dll my homepage goes to c:windows/secure.html I cant even change it for a second. I have scanned with hijack this and heres my list sorry its so long.

    Hi ICUP,

    Let's get rid of your worst problem first.
    Please download, unzip and run: CWShredder.
    Use the Fix button and follow the instructions provided by the program.

    Then reboot, run HijackThis again and post a new log. There will be more to do.

    Regards,

    Pieter
