    Hi Guys
    I need your help with a problem I got. Every time i try to reach a web page (although thang god not an important page) i get redirected. I have done some scans awith various programms and found that the goodthinxx is the redirecting problem. Although I can't seem able to fix it. I have various programs that report these :

    1. With Xoftsoy v3.1 (demo version won't let me fix the problem)
    a. Coolwebsearch.Svinit Regisrty Key Interface\{48E59291-9880-11CF-9754-OOAAOOCCOO908}
    b. CoolwebSearch.Svinit Registry Key Interface\{48E59292-9880-11CF-9754-00AA00CC00908}
    c. MSConnect Registry Key Software\Netscape\Netscape Navigator\User Trusted External Applications
    d. MainPean Dialer Registry Key Software\Freeware

    I have removed the first two manualy within regedit but showed up again after a couple of internet uses, I couldn't find the last two to manually remove them. I had a rundll.problem that i fixed it but those 4 items remaned.

    2. Ad aware 6.0 doesn't show up anything except some data miner tracking cookies which i remove each time i run the software (reference file 01R281 09.04.2004) and each time some show up again.
    3. Norton antivirus 2003 scan (latest update) doesn't find a virus. I have internet security installed and updated too
    4. CoolWebShredder v 1.56.1 (latest update) doesn't find any problem
    5. I installed lately Spybot S&D v.1.2 which only identifies Download accelerator plus as a problem (its a download manager,helps me download programs faster). I uninstalled it since it tells that it won't co-work with ad-aware.
    6. I run Hijackthis which genarated this log file. (I can't find anything)

    Logfile of HijackThis v1.97.7

    Adaware is now at version 287 so try to update to that one, it might help

    There are several new CWS hijackers that have appeared on mass this weekend and we are having problems curing them all at this time.

    I think your version is caused by either of these 2 problems so try the fixes, they can't harm even if they don't cure

    1. boot into safe mode and look for mtwirl32.dll in system32 folder and if found delete the mtwirl32.dll

    2. download this file, rename it as searchxfix.reg and then double click it to merge into registry

    reboot & see if it cures

    sorry I should have said that adaware 181 now has internal reference file number 287 and you should update to that by using the internal updater

    you have to right click the file called searchxfix.txt and rename it to searchxfix.reg and then it will change to a regedit file not a text file and you can double click it to merge it into registry

    there was an error in the attachment and that is being dealt with

    but a new cwshredder version 1.56.2 has come out and that should cure this one when it is run in safe mode
