Mywebsearch toolbar

by billcald / August 15, 2007 5:12 AM PDT

I noticed on my daughter's pc a mywebsearch toolbar located at top of screen. Win 2000 and IE 6.0 is installed on pc. I went to add/remove programs and none of the programs related to this appear. Any suggestions as how to remove this program?

..it probably has other spyware/malware problems as well.. I suggest downloading, installing, updating, then running a full system scan with the free antispyware tool at the link below:

Ewido/AVG Antispyware 7.5 Tool

Hope this helps.
