I recently acquired CWS, or VSearch ... nasty little bug. A fellow member of our gaming clan turned me on to this site, and it really helped. I kept deleting the Trojan, which redirected my homepage and slowed down my IE ... and every reboot, it popped back up, and I would go to "regedit" and delete it again. I downloaded the trialware of TrojanHunter ... and it found the Trojan launcher. I simply deleted it. I haven't seen it again. Thanks for your help. KnightWaterTiger

Thanks. :D CWShredder would have done the job also. P.S. I deleted your duplicate post in the "Suggestion" forum. ;)

Currently, for the new CWS attacks, CWShredder is pretty much useless untill we can get ahold of Merijn. Sadly hes been studying for Mid-Terms. :(

SpyBot Search & Destroy actually found the registry entries and deleted them, but Trojan Hunter isolated the CWS installer and I simply deleted it. There were actually two installers hidden in my system -- one in the tray that was invisable and another in documents and settings for the USER. mad me off. Anyways, three days later and no reimergance of CWS. Thanks again for Trogan Hunter. KnightWaterTiger

TrojanHunter has been an excellent addition to keeping my systems free of problems and I recommend it as worthwhile to purchase and keep updated, it's realtime guard is not heavy on the resources.
