Your web browser has been hijacked by "adware" called "My Web Search"... The fix is involved, but not impossible.

First, uninstall the My Web Search program using standard Add/Remove Programs. Also uninstall any of the following items associated with FunWebProducts.

  • My Web Search (Smiley Central or FWP product as applicable)
  • My Way Speedbar (Smiley Central or other FWP as applicable)
  • My Way Speedbar (AOL and Yahoo Messengers) (beta users only)
  • My Way Speedbar (Outlook, Outlook Express, and IncrediMail)
  • Search Assistant - My Way
Download a free copy of a program called HijackThis.

Reboot your Computer and run the HijackThis program.

Scan for and fix any of the entries shown below.

  • R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {00A6FAF6-072E-44cf-8957-5838F569A31D} - C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch\SrchAstt\1.bin\MWSSRCAS.DLL
  • O2 - BHO: MyWebSearch Search Assistant BHO - {00A6FAF1-072E-44cf-8957-5838F569A31D} - C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch\SrchAstt\1.bin\MWSSRCAS.DLL
  • O2 - BHO: mwsBar BHO - {07B18EA1-A523-4961-B6BB-170DE4475CCA} - C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch\bar\1.bin\MWSBAR.DLL
  • O3 - Toolbar: My &Web Search - {07B18EA9-A523-4961-B6BB-170DE4475CCA} - C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch\bar\1.bin\MWSBAR.DLL
  • O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MyWebSearch Email Plugin] C:\PROGRA~1\MYWEBS~1\bar\1.bin\mwsoemon.exe
  • O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [MyWebSearch Email Plugin] C:\PROGRA~1\MYWEBS~1\bar\1.bin\mwsoemon.exe
  • O4 - Startup: MyWebSearch Email Plugin.lnk = C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch\bar\1.bin\MWSOEMON.EXE
  • O4 - Global Startup: MyWebSearch Email Plugin.lnk = C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch\bar\1.bin\MWSOEMON.EXE
  • O8 - Extra context menu item: &Search - http://bar.mywebsearch.com/menusearch.html?p=ZWYYYYYYYYUS
  • O16 - DPF: {1D4DB7D2-6EC9-47A3-BD87-1E41684E07BB} - http://ak.imgfarm.com/images/nocache/funwebproducts/ei/MyWebSearchInitialSetup1.0.0.8-2.cab
Next, open My Computer, Drive C, and double-click on the Program Files folder
Right-click and delete the folders for:
  • FunWebProducts
  • MyWebSearch
MyWebSearch should now be completely uninstalled from your computer.
There will be some minor registry entries left behind by the uninstall, however these can be cleaned up by running SpyBot Search and Destroy. SpyBot is also available online as a free download.

Good luck!!

@ start error message C:\PROGRA~1MYWEBS~1\bar\6.bin\M3PLUGIN.DLL


It seems this dll files is set to load at start up and would actually seem a virus of some sort, nevertheless, this file is not necessary and should be removed from the system and is already removed, all you need to do is disable this file to load at start up follow these steps:

Start>>>Run>>type msconfig>>go to the start up tab and look for the entry that is loading the dll file on startup>>uncheck the entry click apply then click close, restart the pc and the error message should not pop-up anymore.

I hope this will solve your issue.

Good Luck.

If my solution proves useful please accept it.

Error loading c:\program~1\myweb~1\bar\1.bin\m3plugin.dll


I am pretty sure that My web bar is spyware.

Download Spybot Search and Destroy, update to the latest definitions and do a system search....

It will probably pick it up.

If not its quite possible its in as a startup exe...

Missing m3plugin.dll


This is a spyware/virus. Run your anti virus. then then if it keeps popping up when you restart, you have to do the following. This involves getting into the registry. Do so if you know how. If not get someone who knows how to do it.
Ok, do the following step and get rid of it.
Open Run , type regedit and press enter
Go to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon

and check for the key Shell, the value of this must be Explorer.exe . if you can see some other after that like Explorer.exe C:\PROGRA~1\MYWEBS~1\bar\2.bin... , then remove the second file from the value, means it must only Explorer.exe

Ok, then check for the key Userinit. the value must be C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe, (including the comma) . If after that some thing is there , then delete it.
Ok thats all. restart your system .
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
