Publisher's Description

Trend Micro CWShredder is the premier tool to find and remove traces of CoolWebSearch â?? the name for a wide range of insidious browser hijackersâ?? from your PC. It removes these browser hijackers. CoolWebSearch installs dozens of bookmarksâ??mostly to porn Web sitesâ??on your desktop, changes your home page without asking, and continually changes it back if you attempt to correct it. Furthermore, it significantly slows down the performance of your PC, and introduces modifications which cause Microsoft Windows to freeze, crash or randomly reboot.

I give it 5 because it does precisely what it claims to do in a simple, easy to use package. But this does seem to be less and less relevant as time goes on. Have not run into a CWS infestation for several months now.

This is an invaluable tool if you're infected with the CoolWebSearch spyware.

I'd just like to know where version 2.14 came from? The one downloaded from here as well as the intermute website posted by Mr.T below is verion 2.13.

IsoNick, have you read Merjin's page, you'd know that CWShredder has been sold to another company (InterMute) who is planning on integrating it into their software product (SpySubstract PRO).
But until they do so, they're going to provide it for free.

This is the download page now:

Is this a fake? According to the programs homepage, this project have been cancelled due lack of time from the author. The latest version should be v1.59.1.

Anyhow, I will still give the v1.59.1 version 5 in rating. Very good tool indeed.

if ur system is "infected" with the Coolwebsearch thingie, this is the MUST download... where ad-aware can't fully remove CWS, the shredder does with ease... just remember to turn off JVM in ur explorer options... 5/5
