cool web search hijacked!

  rsturbo 01:52 22 Nov 2004

i can't rid my ie6 browser of a cool web search page hi jack. have tried all spyware removers i can think of cwshredder, spybot, adaware, hijackthis, stinger, avg, manually renaming homepage etc within regedit, spysweeper. funnily cwshredder does remove sysdll and restores 6 browser settings but as soon as i restart pc its back also looked in msconfig and turned everything off. also removed all temp internet files/cookies and downloaded program files.

any ideas would be appreciated - i can then put this pc over to sp2

thanks for any help

Excellent cleaner, do a search at google for it and hopefully that should blast it away.

Home Search Assistant hijack is a variant of the cool web search hijack. Remember to follow all the links to TomCoyote's forum, Castle Cops, PCHell etc. or hope nellie2 looks in on your posting.

I cleaned a friends pc after reading all these postings.

Could be lurking in system restore. switch off restor boot in safe mode run shredder reset you home page and reboot if ok then switch restore back on.
