It seems that I've been infested by the "ebola" of spyware known as CoolWebSearch. My system is old (Windows 98 and a CPU bought back in '99) and I would appreciate any help I can get in getting rid of this spyware. Is there anyone who can help me? I mean give me help beside tossing my cpu. Thanks for any legitimate help offered.

Just wanted to post again since it seems I was forgotten. I've tried a few things and have tried to narrow down the problem. Spyware Search & Destroy narrows it down to soemthing called "FreeWebProducts" or something of that name. Ad-Aware narrows it down to C/WINDOWS/TEMP/SE.DLL; a program I am having trouble removing. Either way, it's something that refuses to be fixed. Here's my original post below. I'm still awaiting help.
