I tried to find a way to remove mywebsearch but it's not on the "uninstall" list. I don't know where it came from.I had internet explorer for years and somehow, BING got forced on me, now this.

These websites are for fixing registry errors and problems. I'm trying to get rid of mywebsearch browser and get Internet Explorer back. I have System Mechanic and their spyware program but it doesn't show up as spyware. I click start, control panel, and uninstall but it's not on the uninstallable list.

Malwarebytes will remove:

Ditch System Mechanic, it is not needed.......

Googling is quicker than waiting for an answer....

Try uninstalling from your browser; probably under, 'view' or 'tools'.

You could also try revo uninstaller.

"I have System Mechanic and their spyware program but it doesn't show up as spyware"

That's because System Mechanic is garbage. Once you get rid of mywebsearch, the next thing to go should be System Mechanic.

I am not particularly familiar with it, but I would also look into your browser add-ons list, if it is there, I would remove/delete it there first. Then run Malwarebytes. While you are there, clean out your browser's Cookies, History, Temp Internet Files, etc. to help you control what is on your computer.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

MYWEBSEARCH is not a virus. It is considered "undesireable software" to most but not a virus and as such, some AV's/malware programs dont look for or remove it. MBAM does. The link is posted in post #3. That will remove it and the rootkit tht hides it.
