I am getting a CoolWebSearch warning

On my Windows XP Home, I have three users set-up, myself as an administrator and my two kids. From time to time when my daughter starts her session we get a warning by Microsoft AntiSpyware that CoolWebSearch is trying to install itself. We ask the software to clean it up but it keeps coming back. There must be something else calling.

The following is my HiJackThis Log File and I would appreciate if the experts could review it and let me know what needs to be removed....

Thanks in advance
