Searched for mashta, searched for navmgrd.exe... nada. (Sigh.) Is it time for me to just give up and summon an exorcist?

I hope that works; can never be sure.

Hmmm, don't know. If they think exorsists will help then let them talk about it.

I appreciate the help, but nothing suggested thus far has worked. Although, in fairness, it's possible I'm just doing it wrong...

Blake I did a quick search for the problem you listed and you might have to redo your computer.
http://www.markcarey.com/googleguy-s...-homepage.html

So far there appear to be no easy "fixes" for the bug you got
If its true that this coolsearch crap is layered thru the registry you might never get it all out.

Bluto I have no idea what that meant

Whew.

Okay, after following the various links you guys have provided, I found a program called CWShredder which seems to have (finally) eradicated this problem from my system. Anyone looking for the program, I found it at http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/cwschronicles.html

Thanks for all your help, everyone!
