After dealing with CWS, and spending a lot of time erradicating it from my computersystem, which cost me money, i'm wondering just how much $ CWS has caused in total losses? I mean time is money, and they are obviously bent on going that extra step to make getting rid of CWS and its endless variations more and more difficult to get rid of them, so why are these fine folks not facing legal charges for intentionally downloading their crap onto our computers? :scratchhead:

The search portal isn't the one doing it; it's their "affiliates."

I'm laying odds that the affiliates are either direct puppets of the main organization or are being controlled by some shadowy criminal organization.

As is, we can't sue CWS because there's no proof that they're pulling the strings, and we can't sue the affiliates because most of them have falsified WHOIS information - and the TRACERTs for them end up in Russia anyways.
