Cool web search is malware but there is a nice utility that will remove it for you. Go to this website and click on the remove coolwebsearch button and save the file to your desktop. Once it downloads to the desktop double click it and choose the option to remove it. It usually asks you to reboot once it finishes, make sure you do that. http://us.trendmicro.com/us/products/personal/CWShredder/

Hope this helps!

If you are using the address bar to search, you should use a browser such as Google Chrome. Internet explorer does not have the capability to do this as quick. Try upgrading to a newer IE to be able to do this

I am trying to remove mywebsearch home page. it is not on my list of programs and have searched everywherw to uninstall it and cannot find it. help please!


I'm not sure what you're trying to do here? Is mywebsearch youre default homepage in internet explorer etc, and you want to change it?

If so, then hold alt, select tools on the top, select internet properties in the menu.
There you will be able to change your homepage.

If you're having issues with the mywebsearch toolbar, try reading this.

I inadvertantly made my homepage Google instead of Yahoo. How do I change back to Yahoo?


If you are using Internet Explorer:
Launch IE
In the upper right side of the page (just under the red X and to the right of the magnifying glass) Click the little dot. That should open the Search option. Select Yahoo.. or if not listed, click Find More Providers.

It looks like you have some spyware on your system.

I found this as one solution:

Try resetting IE. IE>Tools>Internet Options>Advanced>Reset

Let me know if it works.

M3plugin.dll missing module at startup


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!!
