CWShredder is a tool for dealing with a CoolWebSearch (CWS) infection which hijacks your browser, installs unwanted bookmarks, changes the home page to redirect to CoolWebSearch.com. This is an older infection and CWShredder (now owned by TrendMicro) was not as effective as prior versions released by its original author.
MyWebSearch and MyWay are Internet Explorer toolbars often bundled with "free software" offered by third party software vendors. Some anti-virus and security programs detect/remove the toolbar and related files as Adware or a malware threat. You can read more about it here
. MyWebSearch and MyWay were pre-installed on new Dell computers
starting in November 2004. Read here
Dell had a link to "What is the Dell MyWay Home Page?

NOTE: Some anti-virus and anti-malware programs detect the toolbar as a malware threat (not-a-virus:AdTool.Win32.MyWebSearch.bc) while others may remove related files such as M3PLUGIN.DLL resulting in a start up error that indicates the specific module could not be found.
