What is Mywebsearch.com?
Mywebsearch.com is a questionable search site, which is promoted as a powerful tool for searching the web. In addition, it promises to show people the best search results and help them to improve web search experience. So, there is no surprise that this application has been downloaded by lots of PC users. Unfortunately, but we will have to disappoint you because it is not as useful as it may look to you from the first sight.
Just like other application developed by the same developer, this web page has been labelled as browser hijacker and a potentially unwanted program (PUP). No, it doesn’t mean that you are dealing with A virus. However, you may be tricked into visiting unwanted sites that are related to Mywebsearch.com. In addition, users have complained about annoying web browser’s redirects to Mywebsearch.com, continuous pop-up ads and even the surprising appearance of MyWebFace Toolbar on each of their web browsers. That’s because this program is actively promoted in a bundle with other applications as their optional component. If you have found this search engine set by your default without setting it manually, you should think what freeware have you recently installed. If you are not willing to have an unfamiliar toolbar on your web browser, as well as don’t prefer using Mywebsearch.com as a default search engine, you should remove those applications from the system. This can be done using Reimage or another professional anti-malware. Nevrrtheless, this is not necessary because Mywebsearch.com removal can also be performed manually (instructions given on the Page2).
How can Mywebsearch land on my computer?
As we have already mentioned, Mywebsearch.com may appear on Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and other web browsers without your permission. If you want to avoid this happening, you need to monitor installation of freeware/shareware because this search engine may be involved to its ‘optional components’. One of these freewares that are known for spreading this search site is MyWebFace Toolbar and other browser extensions that belong to the same developer. In order to avoid optional components, you should follow every installation step of the freeware. For that, select Custom or Advanced installation option. However, if you have already found that this program is already hiding in your PC, you shouldn’t wait until MyWebFace toolbar will replace your homepage to home.mywebsearch.com. In order to stay safe and prevent redirects to unknown websites, slowdowns, annoying ads and similar activities, you should remove it. The easiest way to do that is to use a guide, which is given in the Page2.
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 SendFilesFree Toolbar 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.
