it sucks. No uninstall comes with it.
man, my little sister accidently pressed accept and now I cant get rid of it, thank God for this site :D
Glad you're here! This is what I have to do when I leave my computer on for my kids to play with. I guess we have to have a meeting.
No matter how often my Spysweeper software finds it, it come back immediately. Help!
I think I may have found a solution, just open up MS DOS Prompt and enter the following:-

del {6A85D97D-665D-4825-8341-9501AD9F56A3}.*

Click enter and there shouldnt be any error messages and Im pretty sure it goes away, I typed in del CWS_NS3.* in MS Dos Prompt and it never came up in Spy Sweeper again =D
Websearch is a real pain. I mean a real pain!!!!!! Can not get rid of it.

What is Websearch Toolbar anyway. Will it screw up me going to any sites? So annoying all the spayware scans keep comeing up.
Why isnt anybody upfront about their so called free or trial programs that wont fix the problem till you pay something? Im not complaining about paying for it but it would be nice to know that the trial version only detects and doesnt remove the problem before downloading and installing it. They wanted about $40 for me to register it so I uninstalled it and was sent to a web page where they offered it to me for $10. It saves not to jump at the 1st thing that comes along lol.
