    I have the coolwebsearch malware on my computer. In this variant, when I do a search on the google website, the results are bogus. THey are made to look like real results, but are actually all links to products, etc.

    I have tried many tools, including cwshredder, I uninstalled Microsoft Java VM,
    ran security updates. I can remove the bug, but it always reappears on startup, and sometimes appears randomly.

    Help PLEASE

    I found this link which describes cws variants, I could have variant 4, cws.msspi
