My PC is infected and I could really do with some help. Just can't seem to sort this out. It seems to be Coolwwwsearch.

I have run CWShreeder v2.19 and it has removed CWS.ALFASEARCH however it keeps coming back.

I have run Hijack log below. Any help would be great.

Hello Jimbolo21

Welcome to Malwarebytes.


  • Download OTL to your desktop.
  • Double click on OTL to run it.
  • When the window appears, underneath Output at the top change it to Minimal Output.
  • Under the Standard Registry box change it to All.
  • Check the boxes beside LOP Check and Purity Check.
  • Click the Run Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
    • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
    • Please copy (Edit->Select All, Edit->Copy) the contents of these files, one at a time, and post it with your next reply.
