Me and a couple of my buddies ran into this problem earlier today, and it took a few hours to find a reliable fix. Coolsearch.biz kept popping up and being a real pain in the ass. Note that HijackThis, Ad-Aware and McAfee VirusScan do NOT solve this problem - Microsoft released a security update a couple of days ago that fixed the vulnerability, BUT, this was a SERIOUS vulnerability - it actually allowed trojans into your system even when IE was not up and the system was idle.

Here's the link to the program that will hose this - http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/downloads.html

If you have it to spare, toss him a couple of bucks. I did, and I felt it was well worth it.
