    New CWShredder 2.1

    Hello, I just used the new version of CWShredder and it identified a lot of items (see the attached screenshot). Can anyone provide me with more info about those items?

    Edit
    I found the reason for these "items". I am using the host file from http://mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm

    Almost all the items that you see are related to browser hijacking.
    You can read about these from this link

    I dont think CWSShredder detects them because of the host file. Although you can change the host file and then run CWSShredder to be sure.

    I actually removed them using CWShredder and run it again to make sure it found nothing. Then I re-download the host file and applied it over the existing one. I run CWShredder again and this time it again detect those components. CWShredder removed the entries in the host file where it shouldn't have done so.
