    Hi minacross,

    This is all I could find for that filename:
    Resume Copy copyfstq.exe User's choice   
    Part of Total Copy - an improved version of the Windows copy function. Allows for resumption file copies or moves in progress when computer was shut down. Not required if your not using the program or don't care about that function

    Did you have any reason to run CWShredder or just fooling around?

    Regards,

    Pieter

    I wouldn't do that if I were you.
    Why risk the chance of loosing system files, when there is nothing wrong?
    I mean, once you are infected with CWS, you will know so. It's not like a subtle and hidden trojan.
    It's a hijacker written by a former trojan-writer, but it manifests itself very clearly on your system once you have it.

    CWS has a nasty habit (probably because the guy used to write trojans to camouflage his cr@p as legitimate files (svchost, winlogon, notepad, wmplayer, directx... do I need to go on?)
    Loosing one of those files because of a mistake in a program that gets revised several times per week, does not seem worth it.

    Don't get me wrong. Merijn is a great programmer, but he is doing it in between his normal life, and he does not get much time to test his product.

    Just my .02

    I totally agree with Pieter

    there is no need to keep running shredder

    once you have had it once and ciured the infection or made sure you are protected by doing all the updates, preferably by installing SUN JAVA you should be protected against the normal means of cws infection

    It can be got on to the computer by downloading some dodgy applications, but if you are careful what you download, then you shouldn't ever get infected by it

    Don't worry about copyfstq.exe
    That is really Total Copy, I assure you, a great utility ! I highly recommand it to copy your files in Windows.
