How to Remove MyWebSearch, aka My Search Bar, MySearch, Search Assistant, My Way Speedbar

MyWebSearch Toolbar goes under a variety of titles including MySearch, MyWeb Searchbar, MyAllSearch and MyWay Searchbar/Speedbar/Search Assistant. It is a free tool that provides meta search engine access to the main search engines including Google, Ask Jeeves (now ask.com), Yahoo! and LookSmart. The toolbar installs onto Internet Explorer, Firefox and Opera web browsers. MyWebSearch software is usually packaged with bundled software products such as Popular Screensavers (FunWebProducts.com / FWP) and Smiley Central (SmileyCentral.com). MyWebSearch is now regarded as an ethical toolbar and is NOT adware or spyware. Its makers claim that it does not capture personal information, track internet activity or display targeted ad links or pop-ups. However, it is still classified as a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) by many security organizations.
