Hi I need help

My browser has been hijacked by a piece of spyware or something and will not keep my home page but always defaults back to Blank.

I ran spybot and it found nothing I then ran adaware and it found the problenm but could not remove it even after switching off restore. Her is the culprit:
Vendor: CoolWebSearch

Risk Level: Low
Comment: "HOMEOldSP"
Description: Malware, Hijacker. Hijacks Browser pages, default search-engine and HOSTS file.Installs unsolicited, runs stealth.(Also known as CWS hijack

Any advice appreciated
