    Well, I was looking through some serials for a software and BOOM.... My browser get's hijacked like hell. The homepage has been redirected to a website that I won't post here in case some n00bies click it and the same thing happen to them but their name is "Cool Web Search". I downloaded HijackThis and it found it, got rid of it and it came back. Ran Adware, found got rid of it, kept on coming back. The same with SpyBot and on and on. Really don't know what to do?? My homepage is always taken by some wierd IP address that redirects to some website. I managed to clean some of it up but I know there are some left but I don't know where and no spyware killer managed to get it.

    Anyone had any experience with this or know how to get rid of it





    PLEASE HELP

    Thanks man but spysweeper doesn't pick it up like adware does. I download an upgrade for adware and it kicked out 280 spyware and hijackThis files. I closed it and reopened it and it picks up some more. Spybot also does the same thing but with other spyware that adware misses. My browser keeps getting hijacked no matter what I do?

    Please help :helpsmile:

    Newer varients of Cws will return after removal by most cleaners even CWShredder. The first step is to run CWShredder. Some have had better results by running cws in safemode then running adaware again while still in safemode. Reboot to see if the hijacker returns, run hijackthis to help identify it. Other tools are available after that.
