I agree. I recently had a nasty CoolWebSearch variant which was well embedded and prevented me from running CWShredder. It also locked up computer when I tried to open My Computer or control panel. Hi-Jack This and Spybot would run okay, but couldn't fix.
I booted to safe mode, ran CWShredder and got rid of problem.
