Editors' review

Though not a full-blown anti-adware application, this program handles its one job with aplomb. As you might guess from its name, the main purpose of CWShredder is to purge your PC of the notoriously nasty malware component known as CoolWebSearch. The minimal interface reflects the app's narrow focus, with only a few buttons for scanning your machine and repairing problems. Although we can't get too excited about the nearly nonexistent feature set, we must applaud the performance, as the program found and deleted all remnants of CoolWebSearch we placed on a test machine, in less than 20 seconds. CWShredder obviously won't serve as your main adware solution, but all regular Web surfers and downloaders should keep it on hand. Also, if your machine is already infected with this icky piece of adware, we suggest you download this free app at once.
