I have ran Spybot a couple of times. It has picked up this and is unable to fix. Any ideas?


CoolWWWSearch.Msconfig: IE context menu item (Registry key, fixing failed)

I have tried CW Shredder & coolsearch is still there. Decided to do the following as suggested because I use Avant.

Open Spybot Advanced Mode/ Settings/Ignore Products and scroll down to Coolwwwsearch msconfig/ tick the box.

What damage can coolsearch do if left on my machine?

This worked for the DSO Exploit before S&D would resolve the problem.

After Spy Bot searches your hard drive and gives you an error - double click on the file, and open it.

It will show you possibly several files with errors, on the far right hand side you will see a registry symbol. If you left click on it, it will take you into the registry and highlight the file in error. Right click on that file and delete it. Repeat the process to delete the other files. WARNING - only delete the highlighted file.

I tried it, the answer is so simple, and it works.

Hopefully it will work CoolWWWSearch.
