Try uninstalling it. Is that an option?

scroll to start click on find . click on find files or folders put in hellspawn all folders and files should appear right click on each and send to trash and if asked uninstall click. yes. You may have to reboot after this. (also empy trash before rebooting.)

Download CWShredder (http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/CWShredder.exe)
Run the program, select the fix button. Follow the instructions as prompted. Then reboot your computer once CWShredder is finished.
Martfinder is also known as "CoolWebSearch", and the latest version of CWSHredder shoudl fix it. (version 1.57)
My favorite fix tho: ...backup everything you need a reformat the b1tch.

Wasn't in the mood to reformat the whole thing, but I will in the next month or so. I ran CWShredder but it didn't fix everything. Martfinder reinstalled itself the next time I rebooted. SO, I ran CWShredder again and then used HijackThis! to clear out the last couple of registry edits. It appears to be all good now.
