View Full Version : CoolWebSearch

I have found out I have CoolWebSearch on my computer. I ran CWShredder and it found and removed "CWS.hiddendll". However, it keeps coming back, is there anything else I can do.

Just a thought...

Perhaps if you boot yr comp in safe mode then try to remove it then it will be gone. I did this once for some similar problem and it worked....

Just hit F8 when booting to find safe mode option.

good luck.

or maybe try spybot S&D or ADaware

Go to Symantec.com (the Norton Anti-Virus Guys), they will tell you how to get rid of almost anything step by step, including deleting stuff from the registry while in safe mode.

Good luck getting rid of that one seriously. I ran CWshredder, ad-aware, hijack this, and spybot search and destroy from safe mode and couldnt get rid of this bs. I was due for a format anyway so it wasnt a huge deal but it was a pain in the ass knowing i couldnt get rid of it.
