ctrl+alt+del not responding

  1. My problem is that Crl+alt+del doesn't respond at all. Anytime I press it, in any combination with any of the keys, whether the computer is frozen or not, it does not bring up task manager. I read a similar thread and know that I need to post an HJT log and there is a log attached. I guess I will let you read the log and thats how we will start, if you need more info, just let me know.

    run a virus scan and spyware scan and report the results here.

    from your HJT log it looks like you have the coolwebsearch virus/trojan.

    follow the advice for removing CWS.
