    to see if we can prevent the cws hijackers infecting or reinfecting you try this:
    install a good firewall, lists here http://www.wilders.org/firewalls.htm if you haven't already got one and block these ranges of ports, both incoming and outgoing

    209.66.114.0 - 209.66.115.255
    81.211.105.0 - 81.211.105.255
    213.159.96.0 - 213.159.127.255
    217.107.218.0 - 217.107.218.255
    that stops the known cws servers responding or any hidden files on your computer updating. This works sometimes but not always as some hijacks come from a different IP number but it's a help. The problem with this approach is that some good sites might also be blocked (not many as all the IP numbers are either in Russia or known to host cws servers elsewhere and very few Russian sites have much relevance to most people and as far as I know all the IP numbers listed are known to be CWS sites)
