for some suggestions;

You most likely have A variant of the CoolWebSearch on your system. Download and run from your desktop CW-Shredder , hit the scan button then the fix button, let it run and fix what it finds. Next you have to replace your version of control.exe, that files is located in your Windows folder (C:\Windows). The file that is there now is a bogus file - delete it if the Shredder hasn't already done it for you. You can get a fresh copy from your Windows CD , restore disk, or cab files. It's in a folder called Win98 for Windows98 or Win9X for Windows ME. For Windows 98 - look for Win98_44.cab. Windows ME, look for Win9X_16.cab. You can also download it here: Control.exe for Windows ME Control.exe for Windows 98. If after doing that you still can't get into the control panel, download HiJackThis and run a scan of your system. Check entries 05, 06, and 07, if they exist, have HJT fix them, reboot, see if the system is OK now. HiJackThis-Explained You should also download and run SpyBot to get rid of the rest of the junk on your system, just make sure you update it first. Install SpywareBlaster to prevent problems like this<---this is important! MrC
