editor's review





If you start your computer, open the browser and find out that instead of connecting to Google, you are automatically redirected to other websites that advise you to download all kinds of unknown applications for cleaning what seems to be an infected system. It happened to you, it happened to us and it is becoming a common thing.

Chances are that your computer is infected with CoolWebSearch. Or maybe you prefer CoolWwwSearch,, YouFindAll, or one of the many names this browser infection uses when hijacking applications.

CWShredder is a dedicated application that can help you in this matter, as it removes CoolWebSearch from your computer and keeps your browsers secure.

Start the process and view results

Since the whole disinfection process might be a bit complicated when you have to deal with infected files, CWShredder has been designed as a stand-alone executable file which does not require installation and is compatible with all Windows versions.

All you have to do is to open this tiny tool and start scanning your entire system by simply clicking the appropriate button. In real time, it is possible to view all the types of malware it has look for and if it is present on your computer of not.

Last but not least, it is possible to create a report and send it to the developers, so that they can better pin point threat patters. You can also choose to move the infected items to the Recycle Bin instead of permanently deleting them from the PC.

Wizard-like GUI

The interface is simple and clean, as it does not consists of many buttons, panels and tabs. In fact, it is built as a wizard, and therefore every step comes with detailed explanations, just to be sure you are doing the right thing. It becomes pretty clear that it can be used by both beginners and highly experienced people.

A last assessment

To conclude, you are not going to find a better tool to get rid of CoolWebSearch, as this packs an auto-updating feature, which helps you get the newest version as soon as it is released. The computer’s performance is not going to be affected in a significant manner and the response time is quite good. We did not come across any errors or freezes in our tests and the interface is user-friendly.
