I get home and found out my cousin has been looking at pr0n on my computer. Now I my internet explorer homepage is getting changed to this : http://my-find/index.htm or something and pr0n addresses are being added to my favourites.

I ran Spybot and Ad-Aware removed all spyware but the problem persists

Check out:
for spyware/malware/foistware reference (http://doxdesk.com/parasite/). This page contains a script that does a quick check for common parasites as well.

and get HijackThis (http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/downloads.html). A very useful tool for getting rid of stubborn homepage hijackers.

Post the exact homepage it's reverting to as that will help us work out what it is you are "infected" with.

Start- programs- accessories- system tools and click on "disk cleanup" then tick them all and let it clean.

Also try downloading and using CWShredder from here (http://www.majorgeeks.com/downloadget.php?id=4086&file=3&evp=6742c4ccda2599a3d6c5901960cc6e24) as it may be a variant of CoolWeb.
