Nope

CoolWebSearch it will not remove. CWS shreder will not remove some versions either. I know. I have been fighting this bitch for over a year. I have sooooo much crap on my PC I do not want to burn to CD. It would take days. So I have resigned myself to using Firefox and toying with it when I get time.

I found Adaware and Spybot can work against each other. The way they fix some problems is counter productive. For example. Spy bot sometimes creates a blank file to kill a progy. I should clarify. It will create a blank file to replace the core of a spy program. Then adaware will come along and delete it. The adware then knows to download that file again.

Both methods would have worked but since both were run niether works. I am sure this is the same for many programs out there.

I'd offer to fix your PC for you (move good "clean" files to one of my servers them purge the data on the pc then format and move back) but it'd take more than a few days

I like root kit revealer for those really pesky windows viruses that just don't seem to go away.
It's not automated and inorder to use its information you need to restart in safe mode and force grant your permission to access areas of your machine I bet you didnt even know where there.
A favorite place for virii to hide is C:\System Volume Information\

I also use spybot and ad-aware.

Check out the user reviews for more info or just private message me if you have a question.

1. no single spyware removal tool wll get everything. Your absolute best best is adaware/spybot in tandem, as well as hijackthis for the superstubborn ones.

Don't argue, this is the absolute truth. Anything you have to add is opinion and is wrong.

2. Use Linux. It is immune to this crap.
