CoolWebSearch Adware.

CoolWebSearch is a well-known adware program that installs itself on Microsoft Windows based computers. It first appeared in May 2003.

 CoolWebSearch is adware. Adware is a license form for using programs, which offers the application at the only cost of viewing a series of advertisements. However, these programs sometimes collect data on Internet usage habits, pages viewed, inventory of the applications installed in the computer, etc.
Then, this information can be sent to Internet advertising companies.
Visible Symptoms: 
It collects user details, such as Internet usage, pages viewed, phone connection details, inventory of the applications installed in the computer, etc.
  1.  It uses this information to display pop-up advertisements.
  2.  Browser hijack
  3.  Search hijack
  4.  CSS stylesheet hijack
  5. About:blank hijack
  6. Desktop hijack

Although it is possible to manually remove CoolWebSearch , such activity can permanently damage your system if any mistakes are made in the process, as advanced spyware parasites are able to automatically repair themselves if not completely removed. Thus, manual spyware removal is recommended for experienced users only, such as IT specialists or highly qualified system administrators. For other users, we recommend  malware and spyware removal applications.
