Hello there.

First, "mwsbar.dll" is associated with the "My Web Search" toolbar which is downloaded and installed with several different free products. The first step is simple: go to Control Panel, Add or Remove Programs... and look for and uninstall "My Web Search Bar". It can actually be present under several different names, so look for any of the other items listed here.

Even though My Web Search is not spyware, it's apparently flagged by some anti-spyware utilities. So my next recommendation is, of course, to make sure you're running a good, up-to-date spyware scan.


Hope this helps.

I get the message c:PROGRA~1MYWEBS`1ar.binM3PLUGIN.DLL when I start up Vista. What does it mean and how do I fix it?


Some people call this program spyware , my web search can really slow down your browsing,

click on the start to see if you have the run command if not right button click over the start button area , select customise then look for the enable run command or use the CMD Shell.

Now type msconfig within the run command window

now goto startup tab you will find mywebs etc , unselect it , please take great care here,

@ 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.

Mywebsearch is a spyware program. Run a spyware scan right away. "MYWEBS" is an indicator you are infected.

It appears to be spyware.

I suggest looking into an app called HiJackThis and use it to scan ur PC then use it to remove references to that DLL file.

I suggest to all - Use http://www.avast.com 's Home Edition Free Anti-Virus it works very well.

Ask here for more help.

Hi
Hey dear its a virus, luckily your antivirus has already removed it from your pc. one trace is remains in registry which will try to load it on startup.

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 .
