Home Search Assistent - wits end

  1. I'm basically asking you to take a look at my HighJackThis log.

    I'm helping someone clean their comp. I followed the instructions in "How to remove Begin2Search/CoolWebSearch and other Nasties". Spybot would get stuck. VX2, CWshredder, SmartKiller came up empty. There must be something wrong with About:Buster file. I coudn't update it and it would not run. (Not even on my good XP comp.)
    In safe mode, using AdAware/CounterSpy I removed lots of nasties. Ran highJackThis (before and after(inlcluded) and removed stuff. However, in normal mode they all came back full force. This is two days worth of work now. Would the HighJackThis log reveal something.

    That PC is SO bad, you should reinstall from scratch!

    If you don't believe me, copy and paste a complete HJT-log into the white box here:
    then press the Parse key at the bottom.

    I will not touch that.
