Inspite of a Updated AD-Aware and regulat Scans Form Ad-Aware and CWShredder...the new one managed to find a few infections in my Computer.....So go on ....Update...........
A new version is available:
* Added new variant CWS.Docobj (uses filename docobj.exe, hijacks to fast-search.us, also drops winstyle.css and winboot.hta).
* Added new variant CWS.Hputi (hijacks to solongas.com and hp.uti, uses filename sysstartup.exe).

The CWShredder (latest version) might question (a popup warning box) the existance of smcfg.exe
This is a legal exe by the way. It is associated with my SlimBrowser in my box, but may also be associated with other programs.
You don't want to remove it.

How are you Today ......
This is a very old Problem with the CWShredder......... I read the Links you gave......And those threads are old...those guys are using very old CWShredder one of those guys even recommending upgrading to V1.56.2
CWShredder version than yours. It is now at least up to V1.56.2
and as far i know it was sorted out....If the New Verson is still having the same problem ....Then i think merijin should put some more effort and energy into debugging his tools.......I think he can't now give the excuse that he has to concetrate on his gradutation. because he should have graduated by now ...every time he gave this excuse for now giving much time to get CWShredder upgraded
Thats not the latest version of CWShredder Nirvana. The version on that site is 1.48.1, the latest version that detects all variants is 1.49.0.
He should live up to his words
Very wise of you to ask this here
smcfg.exe is a legit file (modem driver) and has been flagged before when running the shredder.
It is however a legit file
The reason the shredder could detect this is because of a certain CWS variant using random .exe's. That's why sometimes a legit odd looking file (according to shredder) could pop up, while running the shredder.
We'll make sure to add it to the safe list
