Yikes! Both of those are about as bad as they get. There's at least a
couple variants of coolwebsearch that are best removed by applying a
flamethrower to your hard drive -- they are *that* persistent. CWS is
so nasty that it spawned a remover just for all its variants,

Another good place to look is - lots of useful
manual removal techniques. It's quite likely that the spyware has a
reloader process running -- you will need to boot into safemode and
look for odd entries in your HijackThis log. Pay careful attention to
run items. If you don't get the reloader, you're wasting your time
removing the spyware, because it will grow right back. A clean
reinstall of windows is probably the only way to be sure you nailed
it. *

like corkscrews.
