Hi, I have been working on a Friends PC as she has been having all sorts of problems. I have run Adaware/SPybot S&D/ Spyware Doctor & the Yahoo Antispy software and I'm still having problems. What I have done is this. 1. Turn off System Restore. 2. Installed Adaware/Yahoo Toolbar & spybot S&D and ran all 3 of them. This resulting in removing approximately 1000 Spyware files of some sort. 3. Rebooted and ran again. Still got a few hundred file. 4. Uninstalled the 1800 Search bar manually. Rebooted and tried again. Firewall wouldn't come up (was turned off). 5. Did a bit of a search and found here got the instructions for Begin2Search/Coolwebsearch removal and followed them. 6. In SAfe mode, Ran Adaware/Spybot/Yahoo and Spyware doctor. Removed all 2hundred files/so. 7. Rebooted into Safe mode and ran HiJack This. Fixed problems 8. Rebooted again and still had the ICS web service (needed for Win Firewall) switched off and disabled nor could I access NAV/Task Manager. 9. Rebooted back into Safe mode and Ran HJT for the log file. 10. got frustrated because I couldn't fix it and decided to post here for some help. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
