Good evening,

My browser IE6 resests the homepage to http://here4search.c...?id=80(toolbar) and http://win-eto.com/hp.htm?id=80(tools internet options).

I have run Ad-Aware, Spybot, CWWShredder and TDS and despite removing CoolWWWSearch, ISearch and rebooting, they continually show up in consecutive scans. Here is a copy of my logfile:

Thank you in advance for all your time and help!
