    i've found the spyware on my pc, it's a major problem worldwide for pc's. it appears that after a major spyware security company investigated this spyware they found out that it is being used as a keylogger, etc to steal peoples identities and create fake identities.

    it's time to track these spyware writers down and prosecute anyone knowingly passing it on.

    Anti-virus vendor Trend Micro Inc. provides a free online scanning tool that detects and deletes the "CoolWebSearch" application.
