I recently got hit with a CWS and several Trojans at some sleazball website that I got redirected to. Upon closing my Internet Explorer and Running Spybot S&D, CWS Shredder, and HijackThis to check and clean my computer I noticed that Shredder and Hijack This took much longer to load as well as run then usual. They do run, but I suspect it is actually a clone program that has the appearance of CWShredder, just not sure. Another anomaly is that when I right click over the icons, the menu takes quite a while to appear and clicking on Properties does not always bring up the properties display, sometimes I hear three quick Window closing default sounds. (like the normal sound you have when you open Properties.

Hijack This revealed nothing out of the ordinary compared to my original baseline file. Spybot found nothing, and Norton was quiet as well.

Is there a new CWS variant that is attempts to hinder these programs? And if so, any products available to help track down the mal-code or mal-files?
