i have no idea what is kicking back in but everytime i clean it all out it just comes back with the about:blank homepage with pop ups. Any way i installed firefox and i got that going for them insted of the IE crap. im just gunna sit this one out and hope that spybot or ad-adware comes out with the definitions for it. Hopefully her kids can contain themselves on firebox.

thanks guys you were a huge help none the less.

Not sure I'd even try this one. That's even beyond me:

I think you have a Coolwebsearch variant. I remember removing this once, and am looking for an easy fix.

Not sure if it will do it for you, but this is the one I remember using when I fixed it:
http://www.kephyr.com/spywarescanner/li ... ndex.phtml

As a side-note http://www.kephyr.com has some really good info on spyware removal and not much mentioned here. Almost every time I search to solve a spyware issue that site comes up.
