Cool Web Search

  User-C5CE72DE-020B-4DD8-A95855D47F731F00 15:24 05 Feb 2005

My Yahoo anti-spyware tells me that a hijacher called CWD.Dwinf is in my computer (XP Home).

Spybot, Adaware and Spywareblaster haven't identified it. Although the Yahoo programme claims to get rid of it, in fact it doesn't.

The reference given is C:\Windows\help_dcc.dll and C:\Windows\help_ecc.dll, which I can't find manually. I assumed this was a variant of Cool Web Search but CWShredder doesn't identify it.

Should I be concerned and if so, how can I get rid of it please?

I can't find it on the Symantec website, so it may be just Yahoo's programme playing around with you...

Try contacting Yahoo and ask them what it is and that you can't find it on any other product from other companies and see what they say...
