    My homepage has been hijacked by the site :
    http://t.rack.cc/h.php?aid=227.
    I have adware v6 which identifies it as COOLWEBSEARCHES thingy which I delete and it comes back each time I open another window.
    I understand there is something you can download to get rid of it but each link I click on to do this brings up an error404 page not found.
    Where can I download this SWS shredder via a link that works?
    Thanks in advance,
    Martin.

    The usual link would work if cwshredder's host wasn't presently in the midst of a severe DoS attack. dvk01 has posted a link to an apparent mirror download site which works.

    You got the scoop on SpywareInfo site? You're talking about Merijn's site when you say "host"? I haven't been able to access update info for HJT and CWShredder or access the two sites for a couple days now.

    Which ultimately proves that no-one ever reads pinned topics. :D

    Hi Pieter,

    Just so you'll know, there is at least one individual on this board that not only checks that pinned topic on a regular basis, but keeps a copy of the list up to date on my system, at all times. Thank you, not just for that, but for all you do! :D

    Cheers for the link to your site. Helped me clear the About Blank search engine that seemed to keep regenerating itself everytime i cleared it. Hopefully it will stay GONE. Cheers
