Solved Complete removal of 'My Web Page'

February 7, 2013 at 06:23:36
Specs: Windows XP SP3, Pentium 2.4, 2GB

After downloading a driver, I, like many others, had 'mywebpage' on my browser. Suggestions for removal are many and varied.
I got rid of it by invoking 'Restore' from Windows System Tools.
It seems that it is often accompanied by the Vundo Trojan but my anti-malware program says that my machine is clear.
Restoring is so simple that I wonder why no one suggested it as a solution.
Am I living in a fool's paradise?

If it truly was accompanied by the vundo variation, I would be real careful assuming its gone.

....Because that problem is usually not that tough to get rid of and there can be consequence to doing a system restore. You may not have a recent restore point, it sometimes forces you to reinstall anti virus software etc. So, system restore is not without it's failings and would not be my first choice to rid my machine of that particular problem.

I would run these, just to make sure.

If your MBAM log indicates "No action taken." That's usually a result of NOT clicking the Remove Selected button after the scan.
Quick Scan versus Full Scan

In a very broad sense, with computer problems you work in this order (thus preserving what you have):

1. Fix the problem - sometimes easy, sometimes not.
2. Use System Restore - not usually too much to sort out afterwards (if it works).
3. Reformat and re-install Windows or use Factory Restore (losing everything).
4. Get a new computer (solves all issues).

So you start with the smallest guns. Agreed there are some situations where it is better to move to the next option if you have spent too long on the previous one.
As given in the original post, the best choice is much easier with the benefit of 20-20 hindsight.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
