As I have noticed, I am not alone with my CWS problem. (Thank God)!
Can I follow removal instructions given to Tony etc. or should I follow specific instructions?
Have already downloaded Adaware (Lavasoft), Spybot and registered with Avast.com. Nothing has worked so far. Please help.

Hi John

Welcome to BC

First, create a folder for HijackThis in the root folder of your hard drive.
Reason: in case something gets fixed that didn't need to get fixed you can always restore.



Click here to download Hijack This. Save it to the folder you have just created
Close all open windows and open HIJACK THIS. Click “Scan”[/b] . When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to“Save Log”. Click on“Save Log” and save it to NotePad. Copy the entire log and paste it here.

DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET , most items that appear in the log are harmless or even needed. Wait for someone to analyze the scan and advise.

If you need More instructions on how to use Hijack this click the link below
