Hi,

I found my infection yesterday and wasted most of the day trying to get rid of CoolWWWSearch and Spooner-A trojan. I finally found this forum and am currently following the instructions given. I will post a Hijack-This log if steps 1 - 4 don't eliminate the problem.

Thanks.

I've been continuously working on this problem and I've now had 3 clean scans... 1 with Ad Aware, 1 with Spybot and 1 with Spy Sweeper. I'm still suspicious that malware may be hiding undetected so a response to my posted Hijack This logs is still appreciated. I just wanted to post this and keep people updated of my situation.

Thanks.
