I have picked up something that doesn't get removed by Adaware or Spybot. It appends itself to my home page, added a Search tool bar (I can't get rid of), and even intercepts and adds its own results to any Google search. It looks like it is called amazingautossearch. Here is my HiJackThis log. Any suggestions?

Hi sgharris49, and welcome to Geeks to Go <_<

1) First, we need to remove the pepper trojan. Download this file, run, and let terminate (it'll just blink briefly on your screen and won't appeared to have done much--this is normal):

2) Uninstall NewDotNet using Add/Remove programs.

3) Let's make sure there's no CoolWebSearch Infection.
Please Download CoolWebShredder, from http://www.spywarein.../CWShredder.exe , Extract it & run the program. Click the Next Button & let it scan. Make sure you let it fix all CWS Remnants. Afterwards, Please Post a fresh Hijack This log.

4) CLICK HERE to download Ad-aware
Using Ad-aware: Open Ad-Aware and use the Check for updates now link. Download and accept the latest reference file. When finished click the Start button. When done scanning, the Abort button will change to Next. Click the Next button. Right-click in the Scanning Results window and click "Select all objects". Then click the "Next" button and confirm that you want to delete the selected entries.

When finished Reboot your computer and post a fresh Hijack This log :D
