Hi,

I have had a problem with CWS_NS3. I have followed instructions from other threads. I no longer have the files coming up with spysweeper startup, but the hijack shield keeps coming up telling me that all of my internal web pages have been changed and do I want to restore. Which I do. So it does change anything, it is just a little aggrevating having to stop and answer the question.

Whenever I run a scan with SpySweeper I continually get these 2 files CWS_NS3 and Twain Tech. I have used aboutBuster, Adaware, CWS Shredder, and HJT. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I just ran a HJT and here is what I have.

Please go offline, close all browsers and any open Windows, making sure that only HijackThis is open. Scan and when it finishes, put an X in the boxes, only next to these following items, then click fix checked.

Reboot your PC.

If you would please, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log, and let us know how your system's working. <_<
