This is a variant of CoolWebSearch that redirects your homepage to about:blank. It also installs a malicious service that prevents it from being fixed. We need to eliminate that service.
  • Obtain list of irregular services:
  • Please download ServiceFilter.
  • Unzip ServiceFilter.zip to a convenient folder like C:\ServiceFilter.
  • Navigate to where you unzipped it and double-click on ServiceFilter.vbs.
  • If you have an active anti-virus it might prevent the script from starting. Please allow the script to run.
  • It will open a text file (POST_THIS.TXT) that lists all of the irregular services.
  • Press Ctrl + A simultaneously to select all of the text.
  • Copy and paste the whole thing into your next post.
  • A copy of POST_THIS.TXT is saved to where ServiceFilter.vbs was saved just in case you accidentally close out of it.
Closed: triplicate post.
