Hi there yes its another log PLEASE help i am at a complete loss.
Anyway heres the thing, I run cwshredder and it goes through the list checkin for the variants, when it gets to WS.SMARTSEARCH.2 it stops and closes down! When i re start an error message comes up and says that i have a variant of the trojan WS.SMARTSEARCH.2 and it will restart with a random string of text in the title bar so i press ok and it runs but then it stops again in the same place.
I dont understand why? I have run it with all browser windows closed over and over but nothing changes, i have also run miniremoval_coolwebsearch_smartkiller.exe but that comes up with this error "coolWWWsearch.smartkiller (V1/V2) has not been found on your system"
I dont know what else to do, any info you have is hugely appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Oh and i run Hijack this and have included the log below, not sure what i can delete allso thought it might help.

Dear :)

Try to use CWShredder and then tell the status. if in normal mode it won't work then turn system restore off and reboot ur PC in safe mode .... start cwshredder .... remove all specified trojans.

After this empty temp folder as well from Internet explorer propertis ... Delete all files including offline contents.

Check this and try.

INSHAALLAH will work.

Kind Regards.
