Furthermore, it significantly slows down the performance of your PC, and introduces some modifications which cause Windows to freeze, crash or randomly reboot.More About CWShredder ?It was developed by a graduate student in the Netherlands who also maintained the software up until mid-Summer 2004. The software requires constant updating, because the CoolWebSearch spyware is being continuously being changed.
