CWShredder and two things i cannot remove with it.

  hugh-265156 01:13 24 Oct 2004

Hi folks i hope you can give me some info please on 'CWS.jksearch' and 'CWS.HiddenDll'

i just updated CWShredder to the latest version after seeing this posting click here cheers but when i run a 'fix' it finds the two items above and tells me they are removed. nothing is showing in the recycle bin even though i have ticked the box to move deleted files to here and when i run another scan it finds and removes them again??

i have had a google and noticed a lot of postings from people with the same question but no answers really so does anybody know if this is just a bug, false positive etc with version 2 or something else?

ps. adaware, spybot, a squared, avg etc all kept up to date as is windows xp.

huggyg71 have you got Spybot installed? It seems there may be some conflict if you have click here

  hugh-265156 00:47 25 Oct 2004

thanks no-name yes i do have spybot installed as above and use it regularly along with the others all kept up to date and all they find is cookies.

i have just un installed spybot, deleted the folder left behind by the installer and run regseeker and cleanup to try and get rid of any leftovers, i then restarted windows and run CWShredder again. unfortunatly it still finds 'CWS.jksearch' and 'CWS.HiddenDll' again. :-(

im not going to worry to much as everything else comes up as clean but i will leave this thread open just in case. thanks again.

Have you tried Hijack This.

  hugh-265156 23:09 27 Oct 2004

yes hillybilly i do have hijack this on my computer but i dont have the experience to decipher the report.

as above im thinking as all my other anti spyware software comes up clean and lots of people have reported the same problem, its just a bug in CWShredder.

i can post my hijack this log if anybody wishes to trawl through it but im more curious really than worried. thanks.

Have you run CWShredder with System Restore disabled?

  hugh-265156 16:33 30 Oct 2004

yes thanks i have. should have added to my posting at Mon, 25.10.04 | 00:47 above that i disable system restore before removing spybot to test no-name`s link.

Post your hijack log, I'll have a look if you like. Could you double space it as it makes it easier to read on this board... thanks! :)
