I recently found cw4.exe running in my Windows Task Manager Processes. I looked it up on Google and found it's basically a chat logger, its version 4.1.0, and that when i did a search on my computer there were like 3 cw4[bunch of letters/number].ph (or p something... i think ph), 4 with a blue "CW" icon in front of "cw4" (along with history and stuff in my temporary folders from searching for it). i deleted everything after ending the processes, but I was told in the chatroom that there may still be orphaned programs somewhere that will allow it to work. Does anyone know how i can completely get rid of it?

Also, there were 2 of them running, and when i would click on the ones I found using my computers search it would activate them or something instead of opening a new window.

I'll check this tomorrow.

I was in chat when you were discussing this.
It's a chat logging program, you said your mother put on the computer.
No one here will help you to try and defeat a program, that was installed by a parent.
It's against board policy.
