Use Trend Micro™ CWShredder™ And it Will Be Gone in No Time!
There is nothing I hate more than when someone I knows goes to a website they know they shouldn’t be at or opens a file even though they don’t know who it was from. Then I have to spend hours fixing the problems they have created, and one of the most common problems is the Cool Web Search crap that hijacks their web browser and then puts a bunch of crap all over their computer and it’s a real pain to get rid of it.
Well now there is a tool CWShredder that does all of the work for you, all you have to do is run the program and it will get rid of all the Cool Web Search junk on your computer. Cool Web Search installs all sorts of porn bookmarks on you computer, it puts websites on your desktop, changes your home page without asking, and continually changes your home page back to some crap even when you try to fix it. All of this sucks and can be a pain to get rid of, and the Cool Web Search program significantly slows your machines performance and eventually can lead to Windows freezing, crashing, or randomly rebooting. All of these are issues you want to avoid and now they can be fixed more simply with the CWShredder program.
CWShredder works for all versions of Windows and will remove all aspects of the Cool Web Search program from your machine. It recently has been updated to include the CWS.Cassandra variant that includes a desktop hijack as well as the browser hijack. The program is a simple one to use, you just need to download it, install and then its pretty much point and click to use it and remove the stupid Cool Web Search junk from your machine. It will save you a lot of time and effort of searching and destroying stuff in the registry to get rid of CWS.
CWShredder was developed by a graduate student in the Netherlands who maintained the software until the middle of 2004. The software continues to be updated constantly so make sure you have the newest version, CWShredder is always being updated because the Cool Web Search program is also being updated all the time. CWS has grown from a simple spy ware removal to almost impossible to remove as it has grown over the years. Some of the variants use tactics that haven’t even been seen in any previous spy ware and are brand new ways of hijacking a system and hiding itself. CWShredder helps you with the removal of these tricky more advanced strains of CWS.
You can get CWShredder here (http://www.intermute.com/cwshredder/learn_more_cwshredder.html) and be sure to look at the Cool Web Search Chronicles section, it has lots of information about the CWS program and different variants you might run into. This section tells you all you need to know about the version of the program that you have on your machine and what you will need to do to remove it from your system. There is a wealth of information about the Cool Web Search program on this page and many useful tips on how to get rid of the particular variant you might have on you machine.
Overall Cool Web Search is one of the hardest to remove virus/hijack programs that I have ever dealt with. It can be time consuming and lots of time spent in the registry finding instances of Cool Web Search. CWShredder makes this almost automatic, all you have to do is download the program and run it, this will remove Cool Web Search about 98% of the time, just remember that Cool Web Search is always evolving and so CWShredder might not be as up to date as Cool Web Search. The programmers are always working to keep CWShredder as up to date as Cool Web Search so always make sure you have the newest version of CWShredder. Oh and you could always just not go to sites that will infect your computer or open files from people you don’t know.
I also suggest getting a good antivirus protection program with an internet security suite, the time and money you will save is worth the money you will spend on the programs.
