I'm writing this after i removed the CWS goddamn hijacker :grrr: How is it possible for these sites to remain online? Why sites like coolwebsearch or the other nasty clones don't get sued or taken down? Is it legal to exploit IE security holes? After this CWS About version and the sp.html i'm sooo sick of IE and i got Mozilla Firefox imidiatley.

i kNOW!!! HOW IN THE WORLD IS IT LEGAL for CoolWebSearch and other places to be allowed to operate as legitimate god-knows-what-they-do companies, like

Cool Web Search
113 South Main Street Apt. 1,
Natick, MA 01760

Keith Smith, CEO, 180solutions (maker of the "legitimate" version of n-case)
5110 Carilon Point
Kirkland WA 98023

you'd think these ad-ware producing companies are illegally contracted, OR operating from some other country... but they're all here!!!
pisses me off..
