    Hi Gerard,

    You are using an old version of CWShredder.
    That had a minor flaw. I you use 1.52.2 you should not get that message.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    You need to download the latest which is 152.2.
    152.0 did have a bug where it would remove the hosts file. :eek:


    Are you having a Hijack problem? Shredder should only be run when there is a CWS Hijack of your homepage.

    Here is a link to the latest version.
