Try the first of these; if it doesn't do the job, try the second.

I had a similar problem, CWShredder said my machine was clean, but I ran hijack this, which soon identified the offending program, which I was then able to remove

Thanks for the speedy repsonse. I ran cw shredder and it removed a cws x plug in and two ie registry values it seems that this spam and adware problem is getting much worse and we need to stamp it out (gets off soap box) thanks very much all the same
