Adware.MyWebSearch.c

Adware.Mywebsearch

Adware.Mywebsearch, is a malicious adware application that tends to be distributed by its affiliated website.

Once a computer user visits the affiliated website, they are prompted to install an ActiveX plug-in, which will give the adware parasite permission to install onto the user’s computer.

Once the Adware.Mywebsearch program is installed it may start to display very intrusive pop-up messages and advertisements.

The pop-up messages will take up all of the available workspace on a users screen, rendering the computer useless for several moments.

Unfortunately, the end-user typically has no knowledge of the presence of adware ... until things start to go wrong. 

Adware.Mywebsearch is also believed to display properties of an advertising Browser Helper Object, as Adware.Mywebsearch consists of an add-on to Internet explorer that tracks the text users enter into a search field.

Although this type of program is not always malicious, it has been known to perform suspicious activity such as monitoring the user’s internet behavior, forwarding that along (with information regarding the other programs on the infected computer) to third-party sources.

The main focus of Adware.Mywebsearch is to display targeted advertisements based on your personal interest. These advertisments typically pop-up from every direction, often leading to spam emails and a terrible slowing down of the computer system\'s performance.

If your computer has been infected with this malicious software, it is recommended that you remove Adware.Mywebsearch immediately. 

You will need to consult a legitimate anti-spyware application for step-by-step instructions on how to do just that – to ensure the virus is eradicated completely.

Remember, this application needs to be eradicated immediately!
