From the 1st link on that page I linked ya with and get near the bottom of it?
[b]After reading all of this, you must be under the impression that a CoolWebSearch hijack is near impossible to fix since there are so many variants. Though it is true that the conventional tools like Ad-Aware, Spybot S&D and HijackThis won't fix all of the variants, there is one tool that will.

After about the 3rd CWS variant, I realized this particular spyware company moved faster than any other I'd seen before, and that the anti-spyware programs wouldn't be able to keep up with it. So I decided to write a separate program dedicated to removing CoolWebSearch. It's called CWShredder and can be downloaded here, in several forms:

Normal form, will work for most people:
http://www.merijn.org/files/CWShredder.exe

If you get a message saying 'A required dll, MSVBVM60.DLL, was not found', install this first:
Visual Basic 6 runtime libraries from Microsoft

If you can't or won't download bare executables for some reason, try this link to the zipped version:
Zipped version of CWShredder (http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/cwshredder.zip)

If you get a virus warning for W32/Generic.worm!p2p, try this link instead:
Unpacked version of CWShredder (http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/cwshredder_u.zip) Now that page I linked ya with also states that "Smartsearch.ws" is a variant of "CoolWebSearch" and runnin' the downloadable program CWShredder (http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/junk/CWShredder.exe) will remove it for you. I can't give ya anymore details than that as I've never been infected by it nor has any of the other PC's that I've worked on but the directions seem simple enough. :beer:
