Try as I may,cannot update Windows XP pro. Always get the "Administrators Only" page. Have followed the instructions on that page and check many other site. It never happen before, but seems to have started around about time I had hijack problems although this may be coincidental. Could someone help please!

hi blackeangle- you should probably post a hijack this log. You are logged in as admin right..?

Yes I loged in as Admin, I used Ad-ware(newest version + updated) searched CoolWebSearch dll file under %systemroot%/system32 folder, I can delete it but after reboot, the file comes out again in different name, since I got the "Search For..."( CWS hijack) no matter what I couldn't use WIndows Update and certain program couldn't install. as for Hjack log, I will post it later but I think it won't help. Now I need a program that can trace dll files and tell me where they come from. I used Filemon and Regmon, they don't do much help though.
