That is a virus. You can go to and download to your desktop these programs. Malwarebytes and cwshredder and install them and run them. If you don"t have any virus protection you will find this also on that site called Microsoft security essentials it is all free and should help you get rid of that.

Home page changed, to mywebsearch by google, why?

You may have inadvertently downloaded this attached to something that you DID want to download. It is mostly considered an irritant and a virus infection but probably will not do you any hard but can be very frustrating trying to remove all its parts and pieces. It can be removed through the Control Panel. However, please note that the little black jpeg still may linger on your toolbar area and, if it does, go through the Tools, Add Ons and locate the MyWebsearch and ask for it to be deleted or disabled.

Hope this works for you. If you need further clarification, please just post a request. Thanks.

It keeps crashing when opening of facebook chat and keeps using allot of resources from my PC

If CometBird is causing you the issues that you claim, I highly suggest uninstalling it via the Control Panel.
Windows XP: Start->Control Panel-> Add/Remove Programs
Windows Vista/7: Start->Control Panel->Programs and Features
Select CometBird, then uninstall. I suggest using Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox instead.

When I log on the internet this pop-up shows up.

You may have downloaded an Internet Explorer Toolbar, and it is not working properly.

It's called MyWebSearch, you might see it just under the address bar on Internet Explorer

Double Click Programs and Features icon in the Control Panel (in Classic View) and Uninstall MyWebSearch.

Also, in Control Panel, double click on Internet Options. Then click the Programs Tab at the top of the box that opens. Then click the Manage Add-Ons button.

Look for MyWebSearch in the list in the Window that pops up and disable it by left clicking on MyWebSearch to highlight it then clicking the Disable button below the list.

Hope this helps, let me know if it fixes the error.

Looks like it is an add-on from a MyWebSearch Toolbar. Try going to control panel and the Add/Remove Programs and uninstall MyWebSearch Toolbar if it is in the list.

Also in Control Panel, Double Click the Internet Options icon, click the programs tab and then click the button Manage Add-ons. Go through the list and disable any that refer to MyWebSearch.

Also, if you have a spyware program like Spybot or Malwarebytes run it since toolbars are famous for including spyware. If you don't have one of these, there are quite a few you can search for on google that are free.

How Do I Remove My Web Search?

hi Crazzymandy,

Thanks for your posting in FixYa.

Please do the following:

First, uninstall the My Web Search option from Add/Remove Programs
1) Click on Start, Settings, Control Panel
2) Double click on Add/Remove Programs
3) Find "My Web Search" in the list of installed programs and click on Change/Remove to uninstall it. You may also want to 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
4) Reboot your Computer and run HijackThis
5) With HijackThis, scan for and fix any of the entries shown above that may be remaining.
6) Next, open My Computer, Drive C, and double-click on the Program Files folder
7) Right-click and delete the folders for:
· FunWebProducts
· MyWebSearch
8) MyWebSearch should now be completely uninstalled from your computer.
9) There will be some minor registry entries left behind by the uninstall, however these can be cleaned up by running SpyBot Search and Destroy or Ad-Aware SE or left alone.

If unable to remove from control panel, then try to remove them after rebooting PC in Safe mode..

Hope this would help you a lot.

Dont forget to rank me up.

Have a nice day.

Best of Luck & Regards
