    "Freeware!!!!"

    March 31, 2006  |   By kkolpam

    Version: CWShredder 2.1

    Pros

    It detects many CWS but not this version and incredible quick scan.Remove CWS instantly.

    Cons

    3 stars rated if Shredder is not freeware because it does not detected all or even 95%CWS and cannot completely remove CWS,just temporary.

    "Not bad at all"

    March 6, 2006  |   By franklinmaharaj

    Version: CWShredder 2.1

    Pros

    This product is ONLY for CoolWWWsearch browser Hijacker, and it will destroy any sign of the destructive malware.

    Cons

    none so far... it should be able to remove other spyware...

    "If you feel you might be infected with CoolWebSearch malware, TRY IT!!"

    February 26, 2006  |   By Smoaky

    Version: CWShredder 2.1

    Pros

    GREAT little FREE program for detecting the CoolWebSearch malware and completly removing it.Quick scan of your system and a very simple interface anyone can use.

    No one should be without this program in your arsenal of protection from all the nasties that can infect your PC. Very small footprint which is only 700k's in size.

    Cons

    Nothing

    "InterMute has done nothing but improve this program..."

    January 22, 2006  |   By CableguyTK

    Version: CWShredder 2.1

    Pros

    Its free.

    It detects and removes a LOT of variants of the horrible CoolWebSearch malware.

    Scan times are very quick.

    Interface is minimalistic and gives you good information during the scans.

    Lets you have the program send bad files ot the recycle bin instead of deleting them right away.

    Cons

    Could use some interface improvements here and there.

    Would be nice to know what the program is doing on the system while it looks for different variants.

    "Highly Overrated"

    December 18, 2005  |   By i-Firefox

    Version: CWShredder 2.1

    Pros

    MIGHT be useful if I have CWS that my anti-spyware apps couln't remove.

    Cons

    It's supposed to find CWS and remove it or shred it like it's name suggest, whatever but Ad-Aware found 9 CWS items and CWShredder found a big fat 0! How can this tool be useful when it can't even detect CWS?

    "It is a good product for the space that it takes up."

    November 9, 2005  |   By ajwaterbury

    Version: CWShredder 2.1

    Pros

    Cwshredder is what it is a removal program for CWS. Unfortunately it has had instances where it hasnt found every part in the registry. A good program to run with Cwshredder is Webroot Spysweeper. This program will scan every part of the registry and remove any remnants of CWS.

    November 5, 2005  |   By PFSullivan

    Pros

    Locates Spyware missed by other packages

    "poor outcome with v2.15 of this program"

    September 17, 2005  |   By kevguth34

    Version: CWShredder 2.1

    Pros

    deletes some instances of CoolWWWSearch, but.....

    Cons

    Unfortunately, similar to the sediments of another user who posted comments here, this program is definitely subpar in that it does not remove all instances of CoolWWWSearch. After running the most updated version of spybot again, it detected CoolWWWSearch.Feat2Installer, CoolWWWSearch.Aff.Winshow, and CoolWWWSearch.Feat2DLL. There may be more instances on my system, but spybot got bogged down and I had to stop it prematurely.

    "pretty useless- I'm infected with 8 variants of coowwwsearch, it detected NONE!"

    July 17, 2005  |   By matt9b

    Version: CWShredder 2.1

    Pros

    none.

    Cons

    Did not detect any of the 8 variants of coolwwwsearch adware which spybot detected on my machine. Spybot cannot remove them.. this CWshredder is DEDICATED to coolwwwsearch so I'd expect it to be flawless at what it does.. but no. It's a shame there isn't one big adaware company that has created software to kill ALL adware and I mean ALL, not miss a few here and there but kills everything guaranteed. Dang it I have panda, adaware, spybot, adremover, adkiller, and I'm still loosing the fight with adware. On to google to search for the next software to try and get rid of these coolwwwsearch infections now..
