I have searched for days (while being interrupted by CWS)! and have still not found an update for DLLFix or similar.

What advice can you give to remove CWS?

hi John

Welcomew to BC

it's not that simple to give advice on CWS anymore certain varients get treated differently as well it depends on the OS

so i advise to do this

First, create a folder for HijackThis in the root folder of your hard drive so it can make proper backups




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.

For extra protection try spyware blaster
