    Here are general instructions:

    Remove spyware with Spybot Search & Destroy from and Ad-aware from Be sure
    to update these programs before running them. These programs are free,
    so run them both since they complement each other. It is best to run
    antivirus and spyware removal tools in Safe Mode. You may also want to
    run CWShredder and HijackThis from
    Although CWShredder is no longer being updated, it will still clean
    older variants of the CoolWebSearch malware. I find a combination of
    HijackThis and AdBuster (which you can get from Major Geeks) works well
    on these types of hijackers. Please read the instructions for all
    removal tools carefully - proper removal of malware requires some
    skill. Also, make sure you've visited Windows Update and applied all
    security patches. Do not install driver updates from Windows Update.
    Make sure you are running a firewall and have a current (post-2002
    version) antivirus installed using updated definitions.
