Hey,

I have never been able to find out who is the corporation/ business behind CWS...

ie What country, state are they based in. Where do they pay their tax etc? Any names known of higher managers?

Anyone have this info?

They have a web site www.coolwebsearch.com but don't go there without lots of protection.

They are primarily based in Russia, I believe, or at least used to be.

They should be beaten with torches and pointy sticks. (Jokingly of course)--but they really have infected alot of our machines thanks to 12g, Rand, Cyril, and anyone else who has helped me. Luckily the worst of the CWS is gone...and I can read these posts without the window closing and open regedit without it closing. The porn is gone...but I still have little bits and bobs of annoyances to get rid of.

Actually you could-- just type coolwebsearch.com in like Yahoo and just read the summaries just don't click on anything from their domain! I've done that on websites that I didn't want to visit.
