Having a time removing cws.therealsearch.

CWShredder v1.9 can ID it on scan, but freezes up on it when asked to fix, even in safe.
I am having no browser hijacking (yet, fortunately) but would obviously like it gone.

It's also not showing up in HJT.

I'd appreciate any thoughts/suggestions.

i saw that and appreciate the response, but none of the metioned files sould be found on my machine (ie. editpad, quicken, winrar, waol...)

i'm mostly concerned with why CWShredder freezes up when it tries to fix that bugger.

Open cwshredder again and click on Check for Update. Unzip that to your hard drive and run version 2.19. See if that will be able to fix it.
