    Assuming "MyWebSearch"...

    NB: If you had no anti-virus application installed or the subscription had
    expired *when the machine first got infected* and/or your subscription has
    since expired and/or the machine's not been kept fully-patched at Windows
    Update, don't waste your time with any of the below: Format & reinstall
    Windows. A Repair Install will NOT help!

    Microsoft PCSafety provides home users (only) with no-charge support in
    dealing with malware infections such as viruses, spyware (including unwanted
    software), and adware.
    https://support.microsoft.com/oas/default.aspx?&prid=7552&st=1

    Also available via...

    Consumer Security Support home page

    Otherwise...

    1. See if you can download/run the MSRT manually:
    http://www.microsoft.com/security/malwareremove/default.mspx

    NB: Run the FULL scan, not the QUICK scan! You may need to download the
    MSRT on a non-infected machine, then transfer MRT.EXE to the infected
    machine and rename it to SCAN.EXE before running it.

    2a. WinXP => Run the Windows Live Safety Center's 'Protection' scan (only!)
    in Safe Mode with Networking, if need be:
    http://onecare.live.com/site/en-us/center/howsafe.htm

    2b. Vista or Win7=> Run this scan instead:
    http://onecare.live.com/site/en-us/center/whatsnew.htm

    3. Now run a thorough check for hijackware, including posting requested logs
    in an appropriate forum, not here.

    **Chances are you will need to seek expert assistance in
    http://spywarehammer.com/simplemachinesforum/index.php?board=10.0,
    http://www.spywarewarrior.com/viewforum.php?f=5,
    http://www.dslreports.com/forum/cleanup,
    http://www.bluetack.co.uk/forums/index.php,
    http://aumha.net/viewforum.php?f=30 or other appropriate forums.**

    If these procedures look too complex - and there is no shame in admitting
    this isn't your cup of tea - take the machine to a local, reputable and
    independent (i.e., not BigBoxStoreUSA or Geek Squad) computer repair shop.

    go to safe mode and
    see if you can uninstall it
    via add/remove programs.

    or simply try to delete the
    program's main folder on
    your disk.

    then boot into normal mode
    and run a full service scan
    from here:
