What should I remember about Search.myway.com?

Search.myway.com is a potentially unwanted program that may appear on your computer without your approval. No matter that it is NOT A VIRUS, you should be very careful with this search engine because it may be used for helping the third party websites increase their popularity. If Search.myway.com has already appeared on your PC system, you should think which toolbar have you recently installed on your computer. The most of them claim that they are capable of improving people’s browsing experience and help them organize their work, save the money or get other benefits. However, if this search site gets an ability to change the start page, the new tab page, and the default search engine of the user, it starts showing its ads in his/hers search results. There is no way to miss the fact that you are dealing with Search.myway.com instead of your favorite search engine because of these ads. No matter how safe they look, we recommend you to avoid them because they may reroute your web browser to unknown websites.

Search.myway.com travels bundled with various toolbars that belong to the same developer as this search engine. If you do not monitor installation of these toolbars, you may end up with this search engine. To avoid this, you need to follow special steps that are given in the next paragraph of this post. The clearest sign showing that this search engine is in your PC system is continuous Search.myway.com redirect process to various websites. Please, do NOT stay on them as they may trick you into installing other programs that you don’t need. While this domain is not malicious, and it hasn’t been found to give malware for its visitors, it seems that its developers are still trying to earn the money somehow. Sometimes these methods are not so pure as they should be.

The example of myway search engine

How does this search engine spread around?

Myway.com search engine is mostly promoted using freeware and shareware from the same developer as this search engine. That is why it may get inside the system without appropriate permission asked. Fortunately, you can prevent its appearance without avoiding the free software that you want to install on your computer. For that, double check each free program before its installation. Also, select Custom or Advanced installation option and uncheck all suspicious checkboxes that claim that you want to install browser add-ons, browser extensions, toolbars and similar ‘optional components.’ Of course, you should also uncheck check marks that claim that you want to change your start page and default search engine. If Search.myway.com enters the computer, it may try to initiate various unwanted activities, such as redirects, slow downs, pop-up ads, etc. Besides, you may also find unknown toolbars and other add-ons on each of your web browsers. To avoid such unpleasant activity, we recommend removing this search site from your computer. For that, you can use a guide on the next page of this post.

Recently, the developer of this program contacted us asking us to remove this post from 2-spyware.com website. We believe that we shouldn’t do that as long as programs that we offer for the removal of Search.myway.com can detect it and help users to remove it from the system. As it is mentioned under each of download buttons, we ARE affiliated with these anti-malware programs, and while some of them are free, others can remove a virus only after purchasing them. These mentions fully fulfill each of the requirements of FTC.

Nevertheless, we have recently decided to make a revision of this and other posts that are related to this developer. We claim that all of them are described properly.

    I have been unable to install the $36 spyware that I just purchased, and so I called support line. I have now been sitting on the phone waiting for 25 minutes and am starting to wonder if this spyware or site is legitimate or have I just thrown away another $36. This is so frustrating.

    • Liz

      Would someone please answer. Is this a legitimate site? Im getting really nervous.

    Hello Liz, are you asking about the trustworthiness of 2-spyware.com or the trustworthiness of Search.myway.com? 2-spyware is an old website, which is dedicated for helping people with the removal of potentially unwanted programs, such as viruses, adwares and browser hijackers. Search.myway.com is a browser hijacker, so you should stay away from it. If you have just purchased SpyHunter and you cant install it, then you should try to contact the developer of this program, Enigma Software. Here is a website where you should receive all needed information about the installation of this program: http://www.enigmasoftware.com/support/
    Please, let us know how it worked for you.
    Have a nice day, 2-spyware team.
