Hi, there, just wanna first say, websites like these are amazing and are very useful!

My problem is adware, malware, whatever it is called Coolwebsearch. I can`t get rid of it! The only problem i`m having with it is i can`t delete it and its slowing down my start up and my computer all together which is very annoying, i`ve tried CW Shredder and Ad Aware and nothing seems to be getting rid of it, please help :thumbsup:

Here are the results of the scan only option of CW Shredder

Found CWS.Control (if filesize is over 50k) file: C:\WINDOWS\control.exe (2112 bytes, A)
Registry value: DefaultPrefix (should be http://) [] http://
Registry value: WWW Prefix (should be http://) [www] http://
Registry value: Mosaic Prefix (should be http://) [mosaic] http://
Registry value: Home Prefix (should be http://) [home] http://
Found Win.ini file: C:\WINDOWS\win.ini (7760 bytes, A)
Found line in Win.ini: load=
Found line in Win.ini: run=
Found System.ini file: C:\WINDOWS\system.ini (2422 bytes, A)
Found line in System.ini: shell=Explorer.exe

Any type of advice and help will be greatly appreciated, thank you :flowers:

Please post a HijackThis log so that we can look at it. I am assuming you have click on the fix button when using CWShredder as well?

Create a directory on your hardrive to save HijackThis.exe. A directory like c:\hijackthis. If you do not do this, you will not be able to use the backup/restore features.

Download HijackThis from:

HijackThis

Save this file into the directory you made previously and then run the program. Click on the Scan button and when it is finished click on the Save Log button. A Notepad window will open with the contents of this log. Click on Edit then click on Select all. Then click on Edit and then Click on Copy.

Create a reply to this post here and right click in message area and select paste to paste the log into the post.

Someone will reply to you after reading this post. DO NOT fix any entries unless you understand what you are doing.

Fix these using hijackthis:

Then reboot and let me know if you are still having the problem and post a HijackTHis log.

I dont see anything here. I am assuming when CWS came back you ran CWShredder and then posted your log?

NExt time it comes back please post a log before cleaning it so we can see what it is.

Do this:

tep 1. Download DLLFix from one of the following links. Save it to a folder on your root drive, which is C:\ for most people:

http://downloads.subratam.org/dllfix.exe

or

http://tools.zerosrealm.com/dllfix.exe

Step 2. After it has completed downloading, navigate to the folder you saved it in and double-click on dllfix.exe.

Step 3. It will prompt you to extract the files somewhere. Type in c:\dllfix and press install.

Step 4. Navigate to c:\dllfix, open the folder and double-click on start.bat

Step 5. Run Option 1 by pressing 1on the keyboard. The program will now start searching.

Step 6. Once the search is complete a text file should open with the name Output.txt. Copy and Paste the contents of this text file to your next reply to this post.

My bad for not checking the operating system. CHoose this method instead:

Please follow these steps:

Step 1:

1. Click on Start, then Run and type msinfo32 and press the OK button.
2. Expand the Software Environment section.
3. Expand the System Hooks Section.
4. Look for the which may be listed As:

-Hook type: Window Procedure
-Hooked by: XXXXX.dll
-Application: RUNDLL32.EXE
-Dll path: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\XXXXX.dll
-Application path: C:\WINDOWS\RUNDLL32.EXE

Where XXXXX..dll is the file name.

If you find that file, highlight it with your mouse and click on edit then copy to copy the filename.

Then post that filename with the information in the next step in a reply to this post.

5. Continue to Step 2.

Step 2:

1. Download: "StartDreck" from:

http://www.niksoft.at/download/startdreck.htm

2. Extract the file into c:\startdreck.

3. Navigate to c:\startdreck and double-click on Startdreck.exe

4. When the program opens click on the Config button.

5. Then click on the unmark all button.

6. Then put checkmarks in the following checkboxes:

Under Registry put a checkmark in the Run Keys checkbox.

Under System/Drivers put a check in the Running Proccess checkbox.

7. Press the OK button.

8. Press the Save button. Type in the location you want to save the log to, or use the defaults which will save the log into the directory you are running the program from. If you choose the defaults the filename for the log will be StartDreck.log.

9. Post a copy of the log as a reply to this post.

1. Goto the site : http://www10.brinkster.com/expl0iter/freeatlast/pvtool.htm

2. Download Win98Fix.zip and extract it into c:\win98fix.

3. Navigate to the c:\win98fix folder and double-click on the RunFix.reg. If it prompts you to allow it run, say Yes.

4. When that is done reboot your computer.

5. Now find C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\CTL.DLL which should be visible now and delete the file.

6. Post a new hijackthis log.
