Cannot Remove MYWAY Search bar

  Doyakkon 20:32 21 Oct 04

IT'S Driving me Bleeding MAD

i believe this git off a thing
came with an app my son D/L'ed and installed.
i uninstaled it and thought that was the end of it. but the puters still behaving badly,[which is begining to get really annoying now] so i thought id check to see if anything else was instaled. i found the myway folder still in C/ programmes so i tryed to delete it, it wouldnt let me.
so i ran my cleaners,
Lavasoft-Adaware 6

Spybot S&D

EScan AV


CW Shredder

A2 Malware cleaner

AVG Free

But not one has found it, i know its there i can see it, and FEEL its presence.

any suggestions please?

Open the registry and run a search for MWSOEMON, delete it. then search Windows for MWSOEMON.EXE..delete that also.

Have you tried HijackThis click here, Doyakkon? If not, download HJT to a folder of it's own, run a scan with it and post a copy of the log file. When pasting in the log file, leave a space between each line so that the forum displays it correctly. You also might need to spread the post over a few replies because of the 800 word limit on replies.

Have you upgraded your AdAware?
I had the same problem and updated my AdAware 6 to AdAware SE personal and it picked up MyWay straight away.
