Because, as we all know, CWS is the _only_ adware (virus, or other
malware) that installs "guardians" and uses multiple tricks in its
attempts to baffle far from intelligent removal efforts, right?

That is purely a sign of your inadequacy to the job at hand -- curely
not a qualification for you to provide "advice" to others (well, other
than of that ofrm "get someone more competent than 'petard' to help").

Suggesting that the likely best approach to "fixing" a system of which
you have _no freaking idea whatsoever_ is ailing it is to reformat and
reinstall (_or_ anything lelse) is clearly a sign of incompetence, and
Presenting such inadequate "advice" with little suggestion of the
possibility of doubt makes it even less helpful.
Next time you want to help, try S'ing TFU and letting folk who know
what they are doing have a go, eh?
