Update with Smartsearch crashing my CWShredder
Posted 10 June 2004 - 09:37 AM
I just grabbed the CWShredder update 1.59.0 and I am still crashing
CWShredder on the CWS.Smartsearch check.
On CWShredder boot I still get it telling me I have Coolwebsearch trojan

that's doing this. There can be only one possibility and that's a rouge *.dll that's
registered because it's in the system32 folder.
The thing is between system32 and it's subs I have 2,607 dynamic link libraries
so it's pretty much a job of ridiculousness to check the Company Name under
the version check.
I'm 98-99% on unused CPU process and netstat shows no odd connections
or ports listening or standing by. The only bother this nefarious *.dll is causing
is the incomplete scan from CWShredder (1.59.0).
This isn't bad enough to warrant a O/S rebuild it's just annoying knowing a
spyware library can hide like that on me and jump on CWShredder. It's like
having a rattle or a squeak in your car and you can't find it. Very frustrating.

C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe
I was at Panda's new online virus/trojan/worm scanner
and it found and disinfected and deleted the bogus wmplayer.exe
I use mplayer2.exe (version 6.4) as my default player anyway.
CWShredder now fully scans all the way through without crashing on CWS.Smartsearch

Next time I'm out at this client I'll try to run that Panda online scan and see if it works. Thanks again!

If your Windows XP run an updated Ad-aware scan
Hi Zontar.. I have the same problem with the shredder tried to use the panda online scan but didn't find anything but infected emails in my email folder.. I am going crazy with this Smartsearch.2 pop up.. Thanks for any help
If your Windows 95/98/ME/2000 Pro run an updated Spybot scan
In msconfig uncheck the unnecessary stuff
If your Windows XP/2000 Pro reboot Safe Mode with Networking
and run the Panda Scan from there.
