I have had CWS before, and was able to successfully remove with CWShredder.

I now have a variant that I cannot remove with the most recent version of CWShredder - and I have also tried About Buster in Safe Mode.

Below is my Hijack This log, and the CWShredder log. Each time it appears as though the CWS is gone, it reappears the next time I power on. This program is slowing my PC down to a crawl - I can barely do anything!

Any help will be much appreciated. You guys are great! Thanks so much for your service.
