We study SR-bimodules SMR with the annihilator condition S=lS(A)+lS(B) for any closed submodule A, and a complement B of A, in MR. Such annihilator condition has a direct connection with the CS-condition for MR. We make use of this to give a new characterization of CS-modules. Bimodules SMR for which rMlS(A)=A (for every closed submodule A of MR) are also dealt with. Such modules are called W-modules. We give the extra added annihilator conditions to W-modules to be equivalent to the continuous (quasicontinuous) modules.
