    I just updated my definitions today. It had 18 new CoolWebSearch but I'm unable to protect against it. I've enabled all protection nothing happens, did selective and nothing happens. What's going on. I've never had this problem beforeo_O?

    Well, I'm not a professional, but I have always found CWShredder useful for getting rid of CWS. It can be found here. Make sure you check for updates before you try to use the program to clean your system.

    Great program I wouldn't be without it, nor HJT.

    CWS trojans/spyware have always been amongst the hardest ones to remove.

    A combination of

    CWShredder
    AboutBuster &
    Ewido

    will clean most of them - but you can try other programs as well.

    Otherwise you may have to visit a HJT forum

    SpySweeper does the best job getting rid of it.
