How do I get rid of the mysearch website?

Everytime I first open IE6 on my computer, I get the address
(http://) here. Though my is set to click here in my Internet options, I'm still getting the mysearch website up. Its happened since I downloaded messenger plus 3 for msn messenger. I even went through what I can find in the registry relating to the mysearch address and modify to that of ntlworld.
I even ran a spybot check, and spywareblaster to no avail.

And the mysearch website is a restricted website.

Can anyone help please?

I downloaded spysweeper, and it did the trick.

And thanks Vog for your help

For the first time today, when I switched on the computer, I freshly opened a webpage browser. To my knowledge as of last night, I thought the website would be eliminated after I ran spysweeper, as was suggested by Tasslehoff, but shockingly on opening a browser insists on opening as a home page.

Could there be a virus?

Have you tried uninstalling the programs as mentioned in VoG's first link?

And before I ran spysweeper, there was no reference to 'mysearch' in 'Add/Remove Programs' at all.

Anyway, I ran CWShredder which I hope would solve the problem.

Are you saying that you ran CWShredder but mysearch has come back?

You could go into C:\ and or whatever your HDD is, go to Program Files and look for the folder. I think Mysearch has an uninstaller in the folder that all of its files are kept in the Program Files.

Yea, VoG, I even ran CWShredder and even that didn't solve the problem :o(

Though, with regards to Charence message, I took a look in the Programs Folder, and I can't find nothing relating to mysearch (unless its under another name) only there is a folder which I am not sure of...the folder is called Acid Five Kind in the Programs Folder, and on opening this folder there appears to be an extension file called AxisIdol.exe?
