MyWebSearch

Malware removal

 screenshot The MyWebSearch adware has always been a troublesome piece of software, especially when Dell used to pre-install it on all its PCs and no one could figure out how to get rid of it, and it hasn’t gotten any better with age. You’d think adware companies like this would learn from their mistakes, but I guess there’s still a lot of profit to be made from violating people’s privacy and spying on their browsing habits.

Lately, MyWebSearch seems to be back with a vengeance, as we’ve been hearing more and more from people who just can’t seem to get rid of this junk, which has a bunch of different features including a toolbar that appears in Firefox, IE, and Opera. It’s not necessarily an evil program, but it does slow down your system, and no one likes being spied on.

If you’ve tried everything and just can’t seem to get rid of MyWebSearch, let me show you how to do it for free.
