Company: My search

Product: MySearch

Threat: BHO/Possible spyware

Company product URL: click here

Functionality: IE search toolbar

Description: The small privacy policy seems to be not quite right. For using Google or Altavista as a search engine, this toolbar still routes the searches over their own site. and why does every file that the page requests need to set a cookie that includes the users IP address?

Privacy Statement: The My Search site and your My Search Bar protect your privacy. My Search does not track your searches or where you go on the Web. The My Search Bar does not contain any type of ad software to present you with ads while you are on the Internet.

Have you tried press the F11 key on your keyboard?

yea tried f11, seems to expand screen viewing area but thats about all. just downloaded spybot so i am waiting to see if that can get rid of it. but i am wondering if i have removed "MYSEARCH" from add/remove programmes already then i may need to "restart pc" to see a positive result?
