Hello, I'm slightly embarrassed to admit this but my computer picked up a nasty infection of the CoolWebSearch family of malware / trojans. The infection came from links within a Facebook application called Dream World. To get bonus rewards in the game (similar to the rewards system in Mafia Wars) you need to click the links and give them your junk email address. I'm a dummy and clicked some of the links and my computer was infected. I'm disappointed but not surprised that Facebook allows the application programmers to get away with linking to malware sites. Everyone is in it for the money. Anyway, after trying several tools I was able to remove it with Download CWShredder 2.19 - FileHippo.com from Trend Micro. I initially tried with Spybot S&D. That detected the problem, removed some of it, and tried but failed to remove the rest after starting early after a reboot. I also had MalwareBytes installed which detected up 2 problems and removed them. I'm mostly disappointed, besides with myself and Facebook, with the Avast anti-virus program. I have avast anti-virus installed with all of the providers active and running but all though this I did get a single alarm or warning from Avast. I would have expected Avast to have made some noise. Do you agree?
