I have been unable to permanently get rid of www.coolsearch and www.coolsearch.googlems from continually re-appearing after I run Spy Bot. I have attached my Hijack scan and appreciate your advice.

Your computer has a number of spyware programs that we need to remove. For more info on spyware see the Spyware Tools link in my signature.

Let's start with a free program:
CWShredder is the first to run. Here's why: If a CoolWebSearch variant is indeed running on your system, it may actually prevent you from running spyware scans. It is smart enough to detect efforts to detect it, and stop them. Download CWShredder to your desktop or other location. Close all browser windows, double click the CWShredder icon to run, then click the Fix -> button. When finished, reboot and run Spybot Search & Destroy.

Finally reboot and post a fresh log.
