I think it's spyware but not sure how to remove it. I just restored my sister's laptop to a few days earlier when she got it.

MyWebSearch Removal Instructions

Most of the program can be remove by clicking on Start->Settings->Control Panel and double clicking on Add/Remove Programs. Then 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

To clean up the registry, delete the keys and value HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\MyWebSearch Email Plugin.

Reboot your Computer.

Next, open My Computer, Drive C, and double-click on the Program Files folder

Right-click and delete the folders for:

FunWebProducts
MyWebSearch

MyWebSearch should now be completely uninstalled from your computer. [/FONT]

I wasnt being smart :?

you posted a question and the answer was clearly specified in detail on the page but you still asked "what do I do once I'm there" to which I replied "read the page"

maybe you shouldnt go installing all sorts on your laptop if you dont understand basic removal instructions :thumbsup:
