Today I was visiting some forums which I regularly visit. I found out that people are having problems with a toolbar called My Way Search Assistant. So I thought that it would be a good idea that I write about it.
What is My Way Search Assistant:
MyWay Searchbar, also known as MyWay Speedbar, MyWay Search Assistant, Webfetti Toolbar, MyWebSearch, or MyWeb Searchbar, is a malware and search toolbar program that allows the user to query Google, Ask Jeeves, Yahoo!, and LookSmart search engines. HP and Dell pre-install this software on some of their commercially sold PCs. It is also bundled with some versions of Kazaa. It is also a part of the FunWebProducts suite of utilities such as Smiley Central, Webfetti, Cursor Mania, My Mail Stationary, My Mail Signature, My Mail Stamps, FunBuddyIcons, PopSwatter, and Popular Screensavers.
How does it work:
MyWay Searchbar attaches itself to the Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator browsers, adding search functions and pop-up blocking. MyWay also collects data about the user’s surfing habits and sends it back to the MyWay server to tailor ads toward the user’s interests.
How to remove it:
There are so many ways to remove My Way Search Assistant but this way seems like the most easy and the most effect one for the people. Please follow the instructions below:
-Go to Start –> Run
-Write(or copy and paste) the following:
-If a prompt comes, select yes.
You’re all done. My Way Search Assistant has been removed from your computer :-).
