Hi everyone,
im just hoping that someone will be abel to help me here. Ive wasted many hours in fruitless research trying to rid myself of CWS homesearch assitant.Before anyone makes a suggestion i would just like to say that i have spywareblaster. ALURIA,Ad-aware se, spybot search and destroy,Process guard 3.150,
CwsShreddar 2.19. A'SQUARED,Hijack this,Spyware Doctor,Pest PATROL, AND mICROSOFT Anti-spyware beta.
I have tried; www.bleeping computer.com and aboutbuster with only marginal results.(it found only one part called 'thumbs.db:encryptable' and went thru the tutorial as best i could. Safe mode was used too.Only Spyware Doctor seems to delete it and then it seems to come back later.*It did nt delete thumbs.bd :encryptable though.
Im going mad trying to get rid of it and only a fresh reinstall seems likely.Im getting fed up of Microsoft and indeed the internet too.I seem to spend more time tryinmg to rid myself of spyware than naything else.Can someone please , please help me.Im at my wits end?
Spywareblaster seems useless;and ALURIA bRINGS UP FALSE positives;Ad-aware hangs, spybot never finds much and neither does Pest patrol.What am i doing wrong?

Trendmicro Anti Spyware free trial[/b]<-- I'd recommend this program, it comes with a built in CWS remover.

If you want to run a last resort virus scan, Try TrendMicro House call. Dont use this as a primary Anti virus program, and this should only be used as a last resort.
