Unwanted search engine

Each time I log on I go directly to coolsearch.biz - I have tried running spybot to get rid of this as I wish to use google as my home page. No luck . Any ideas? I have Windows ME.

It isn't coolweb, unless adaware deals with it (there have been a lot of updates recently) the only way I have managed to fix it is with HJT

HJT i presume is HIJACK THIS?

Dick W, clear your temporary internet files & cookies then run CWShredder as suggested by VoG™


do a system restore to a time before this browser hijack appeared. (only way i could get rid of a recent hijack by Freedns***.com
(for obvious reasons i aint putting the propor link in there as i dont want anyone else to get bitten)
