    Ok I just ran Cwshredder on a XP box and it scanned and found nothing until it got to "hiddden.dll" then the system completely shut down. After booting up it now says my network cable is unplugged, which it isnt. It seems like this thing detected I was running a scan and shut off the machine and disabled my NIC. Anyone see or hear of this or know what to do?

    nevermind. i panicked for a second cause this is the big cheese's computer. I did some basic troubleshooting and found that somehow the cable crapped out--it just seems like too much of a coincedence it worked fine, then I ran cwshredder, it crashed at "hidden.dll"--on reboot no network--I exchanged ethernet cable and function restored.
