You Have A Variant of the CoolWebSearch Trojan.

Please Download CWShredder from http://cwshredder.ne...CWShredder.exel and run the Program twice. Press the "Fix Button" Let it fix all variants.

Next, Please look over the Following Entries I have listed, run Hijack This again and check them and then, making sure you have No Internet Explorer Windows open, including this one, Press the "Fix Checked" Button with HijackThis.

Reboot If I have specified below, and Post a Fresh HijackThis log.

After this, Reboot and Delete the following files:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\xpsp2fw.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\wuclient.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\tibs3.exe


Note: Make sure you have Set Windows to show Hidden Files & Folders before you Start Sending Them to us For Analysis, or you're deleting them. This can be done by looking at the instructions at This Webpage http://www.xtra.co.n...1916458,00.html

To Delete These Files/Folders, You Will need to Boot into Safe Mode. This can be done by tapping F8 while your machine restarts.

then post a fresh hijack this log

Your Log is Clean, But You Need to Update Windows and IE to get all the Latest Security Patches that Protects Your Computer.

This can be accessed by going to http://www.windowsupdate.com/ and following the prompts

For Future Protection
Download and install:

SpywareBlaster will block bad ActiveX and malevolent cookies. http://www.javacools...areblaster.html

IE-SPYAD puts over 4000 sites in your restricted zone so you'll be protected when you visit innocent-looking sites that aren't actually innocent at all.
https://netfiles.uiu...rce.htm#IESPYAD

Both are very small free programs that you run once, and then just occasionally to check for updates.

And also see
So how did I get infected in the first place?
