Here is what I had to do to get rid of coolpage.

1.disable your system restore(you can turn it on again once you have got rid of coolpage).

2. Go to start 'search' and search for all instances of 'coolpage' delete all instances you find.

3.Go to start/run/and type regedit, when the registry window opens doubleclick 'My Computer' to close all the open registry sections,in the registry window.

4.Click file and then export this will allow you to back up your registry.

5.Click 'edit' and then 'find' type coolpage in the open window, search and delete all instances you find, make sure you delete them all.

6. Go to start/run and type msconfig click the 'startup' tab look for any instances of reg32 or reg33 untick any instances you find.

7. Once you have done all of the above reboot and hopefully coolpage will have gone for good.
