Found QTTasks on mine also.  No problem removing it.

 

 

 

 

What did you have to do? I was given no options, the fix button is greyed out. Cannot get on the site which it takes me to when I click on the infection.

Still have an update problem, even on that product

 

 

 

Starting with v2.16 the integrated update feature no longer was able to check for updates anymore, at least in my case it has failed each time. Neither of their websites this one and this one have been updated for months to reflect that there's a newer version other than v2.15 available, hence the reason I listed the FileHippo.com URL for downloading.

 

Edit:

Just put my feet in my mouth. Now v2.18 can check for updates again.

You did hit fix first, not scan only? If you hit fix, then it'll scan and get rid of problems... If you scan only it does what it says...

 

 

 

 

Worked that out now!! Thanks for the reply. All clean now

Cool? No it isn't.

 

It is so sloppy that it detects toolbar.isearch.com as a hijack when you've put it in your host file to prevent becoming infected.

 

 

 

Since you know it's a false positive you can ignore it. All malware scanning software is subject to causing false positives!

Trend Micro CWShredder 2.19 released

Download the standalone .exe (520 kb) from FileHippo.com, MajorGeeks.com or TrendMicro.com, or use the integrated update manager built into CWShredder to download the zip package (242 kb) from Trend Micro.

 

None of the downloads included any documentation!

Strangely enough this new version is the same size as the old one byte for byte.

 

Edit:

Added an additional download site.
