Re: Error message comes up when I turn my computer on
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.

You have picked up the horrible program My web Search. You need to get this off your computer asap. Restart your computer in Safe Mode and then go to Control Panel >> Add/Remove programs and find My Web Search and uninstall it. Immediately run your security scans while still in Safe Mode. Restart your computer after doing all this and it will return to normal mode.
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
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.
You have spyware infesting your computer, the mywebsearch browser helper object. Run either Adaware or Spybot Search & Destroy, either should get rid of it for you. If not, please post to this thread and I'll give you a link to manual removal.
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 .
This message occurs when a "run key" still exists in the registry for an item that has been removed from your machine.
In this case, you would just "fix" it with HJT to remove the key from the registry.
If you still have Mywebsearch active, the first step would be to uninstall it via Add/Remove Programs.
Failing that, open the C:\PROGRAM FILES\MYWEBSEARCH folder and run the uninstaller manually. If no uninstaller exists, you could just delete the folder and clean registry remnants manually, to the extent desired - (most just remove the runkey and leave it at that).
