Hijacked by CWS

Got the dreaded CWS spyware/adware on my system

Have gone through the suggestions on this and other sites but cant sort it.

Downloaded and tried every suggested tool/prog but none have helped - cwshredder, Xoftspy etc etc

Tried running these in safe mode and with system resored turned off

Any one got any new ideas?

Abandoning IE and using Firefox seems like the only solution at the moment!

Download CWShredder from here click here Luckily I've never had to use it so can't say how effective it is.

chesterfield;CWShredder is very effective at killing the nasty stuff of CW;It will remove it from your system,then you should have no further problems with CW.
It may help also if you read through the CW Chronicles,to prevent you getting it again,hope this helps.

Thanks for the advice guys. Cw shredder doesnt work with these new forms though - tried it myself numerous times and had this confirmed on various other sites.

Will try posting log to malwareremoval.com as suggested though VoG.
