    AdAware detects files installed by Daemon Tools as CoolWebSearch

    Hi,

    i'm a bit worried cause AdAware just found some critical objects. They are characterized as CWS (CoolWebSearch).

    Fortunately i have a very tight system and i dont go to sites which will infiltrate ur pc w/ CWS and other parasites.

    Since i log all my installations i also checked the Daemon Tool log. And to my surprise those files marked as CWS have been dropped by Daemon.

    e.g.
    wbemess.log

    ?????

    Anything i need to worry about?

    Please clear out that confusion.

    Greetings

    Indeed. Thanks alot.

    Funnyest thing: This thing came about when I ran Notepad.exe and nothing seemed to happen (doh!)

    ...and the administrator thing can't be helped. This is a family computer, and unfortunately everything doesn't go the way I'd like it to.

    Music is shared, .exe files are opened behind my back, and I have a little sister who doesn't want to give up administrator privelages. It's anarchy!

    Tsk tsk, running Internet Explorer and/or Lookout Express WITH administrator privileges? Man, I don't want to sound nasty but you really had it coming..

    The only FINAL solution is:
    http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.o...up%201.0PR.exe
    http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.o...dSetup-0.8.exe

    Also, it's a very good practise never to do everyday tasks like surfing the web with an Administrator account!

    Only use the super user account for system maintenance like updating drivers and a regular user for *everything* else.

    I assume you have scanned your machine with latest Ad-Aware and Spybot Search & Destroy and they didn't help?

    Here's an info page about Coolwebsearch, I hope it helps.. this piece of spyware seems very hard to remove, so could you revert back a restore point or two?
