December 21, 2010  |  By richarddooley

Pros

Easy. Installs, and works quickly.

Cons

No problems. The CW Search had been removed already. With this program, it is now completely off the system.

January 24, 2010  |  By pilotguy

 |  Version: CWShredder 2.19

Pros

seemes to clean out the basics

Cons

will rearrange all your favorites

It's a simple program, and doesn't really do much more than you can do by yourself by erasing cookies, temp, files, etc. I removed it.

"It appears to do what it says it will do."

August 18, 2009  |  By mnc23

 |  Version: CWShredder 2.19

Pros

see summary

Cons

Not very informative as to what it did and where.

Summary

With any product of this nature you have to trust that the results are accurate. It seems to work OK and I have never seen a complaint about it.

"GOOD--I THINK???"

January 10, 2009  |  By pistei

 |  Version: CWShredder 2.19

Pros

scans for coolwebsearch stuff

Cons

don't know

Summary

i guess i would be happier if i happened to ever have the coolwebsearch things on any of my machines (6 desktops, 3 laptops). however, even with teenagers surfing and all kinds of stuff and websites, (evidently), i've never had that coolwebsearch problem. i've run this software and it has never found anything. my guess is because i use spybot search and destroy. i'm guessing that it immunizes for coolwebsearch because when spybot scans, i can see the words "coolwebsearch" listed. cwshredder might be a great backup if spybot misses the boat, but i haven't had an opportunity to "shred" anything.

"Very powerful"

November 13, 2008  |  By Jim Harmon

 |  Version: CWShredder 2.19

Pros

It's reasonably fast

Cons

Links don't work.

Summary

This program confirmed that I don't (yet) have this malicious piece of software on my system. I was annoyed by the fact that the "Check for Update" and the "Test Your System for Other Spyware" buttons don't work.
