When I ran spybot S&D this morning The above nasty was showing. I tried to remove it but got the message that it could not be removed and to restart my comp, which I did. S & D started up and I got the same result. Can someone please advise me how I can remove it. Is it dangerous if I cant remove it. Thanks in advance. I am running Win XP Pro SP3.

Download, install, update and run scans with both Mbam click here and SuperAntiSpyware click here both are free.

Google "My Way My Web Search" I think you'll find it's harmless.

MAJ thanks for your quick reply. I downloaded both programmes and scanned my system. Both programmes detected the files and and reported that it had removed the threat. I then scanned the system again and it reported all was clear and there were no threats. I then ran spybot search and destroy and it reported the offending fies were still there. I then went to the control panel add and remove programmes and the programme was not listed. Any ideas?

after running SAS and Mbam (in safemode) you need to reboot the computer and scan again....Do you still have any entries ?

The best way of removal is manually if possible.Here is a link that will guide you through,if you need help...just ask click here

Thanks skidzy for your reply. The problem is there is no mention of the programme in add & Remove. I scanned with SAS and it found it and I quarantined it and then rebooted and rescanned and it said there were no infections.I then scanned my comp in spybot S & D and the infection showed again and it was unable to remove it. So I am now stumped any other suggestions.

It could be that Spybot s&d is picking it up in SAS' quarantine. Delete it from quarantine and then run a scan with spybot. click here

Hi rdave13 I did as you suggested and I scanned with SAS and it reported no threats. I then rebooted and scanned with Spybot S & D and it still found the threat fter a reboot.
