CoolWebSearch is a dangerous, well-known browser hijacker and spyware. It first appeared in May 2003.
CoolWebSearch was, apparently, one of of the first browser hijackers ever. It is known for being difficult to remove. A man named Merjin Bellekom devolped a program, CWShredder, which completely removes every trace of CoolWebSearch on one's computer. While the program hasn't been updated since November 2005, it is still functioning.
Steps to Remove CoolWebSearch
- As it is difficult (and sometimes dangerous) to remove CoolWebSearch, please download and run CWShredder. It removes the engine and all problems originating from CoolWebSearch.
