Merijn also has CWShredder for removing CoolWwwSearch. That might help you. http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/downloads.html Cheryl Ash -----Original Message----- From: thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of Mark Joslyn Sent: January 19, 2005 12:16 PM To: Evolt Subject: [thelist] browser hijacking Hello all, I have a bit of a dilemma. I believe my home computer has been hijacked (to some degree). Here are my symptoms: I cannot access one particular website via the internet (www.power-sonic.com) Sometimes Google (my home page) is not Google, but some other website - but the address bar say www.google.com/ I have run about 9 different spyware checkers, and anti-hijack programs including: Adaware (says I am clean) Spybot Search & Destroy (says I am clean) Spy Sweeper (says I am clean) The other spyware programs are all over the place telling me that I have CoolSearchWWW and PeopleonPages, various registry entries, tracking cookies, etc. I have run Hijack This and is looks as though any malicious items have been removed and that what is running is legitimate. My problem is this - I am still having issues accessing the site and with Google. It is very frustrating since it is a sporadic occurrence - sometimes I do a spyware check and delete a cookie and everything is fine. Then a while later I am having problems again - run a spyware check and it find nothing. What do you do when Spybot and HiJack This both tell you that your machine is fine, but you are still experiencing problems? Any help would be appreciated.
