✔ Best Answer
A lot of programs, now give you the choice to install toolbars & other during the install. Either uncheck these items during install, or use Custom.
1: Run AdwCleaner
Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop.
Close all open programs and internet browsers.
Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
Click on Delete.
Confirm each time with Ok.
Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
Please post the content of that logfile with your next answer.
You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.

What browser, what operating system?

You said you "deleted everything" you could find. Deleting doesn't work. You need to uninstall. Go to Control Panel and either Add/Remove Programs (in XP) or Programs-Uninstall a Program (In Windows 7).

Find the entry for 'mywebsearch' and choose uninstall.

You should also go to the "Add-Ons' tab for your browser and "Remove" the toolbar there.

If this doesn't work, let me know what browser you're using.
