Question my way my web search pupsc
My system is Vista Home Premium with an Athlon Dual Core 4000+. I hope that is enough info and my problem is this. I ran Spybot S & D and after fixing most of the problems I was left with My Way My Web Search PUPSC. I found one "solution" by downloading Super AntiSpyware but that didn't solve the problem and am stuck with this nasty. Is there any way I can get rid of this that you know of. Would be much obliged.

Hello Derek, Many thanks for your help. I tried that malware site and scanned the system and it found a couple of "ask toolbar" entries which I duly rid myself of.
Alas when I ran a Spybot S&D scan the same old same old came into view. I checked on the report and it did say that sometimes when uninstalled My Way My Web Search leaves residual entries and they are probably there forever.
My log file is above. I hope this is what you wanted.
I used to live in Saffron Walden btw. Long time ago now.

Download ComboFix from Here to your Desktop.

**Note: It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop and run from the desktop and not any other folder on your computer**
1. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
  • Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results"
  • Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.
  • Remember to re enable the protection again after combofix has finished
2. Close any open browsers and any other programs you might have running
Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
If you are using windows XP It might display a pop up saying that "Recovery console is not installed, do you want to install?"
Please select yes & let it download the files it needs to do this
When finished, it will produce a report for you.
Please post the "C:\ComboFix.txt" along with a new HijackThis log for further review

****Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall or freeze ****

Note: ComboFix may reset a number of Internet Explorer's settings, including making it the default browser.
Note: Combofix prevents autorun of ALL CDs, floppies and USB devices to assist with malware removal & increase security. If this is an issue or makes it difficult for you -- please tell us when you reply. Read HERE why we disable autoruns

I tried downloading combofix but for some reason it wouldn't fully download. I kept getting messages about renaming with alphanumeric and some other gobbdlegook. I don't want to keep my computer at risk by closing everything down on a questionable download like this thanks. I'll live with the registry entries .

In addition to problems downloading, I wasn't given the option of saving to the desk top and now I can't rid myself of the programme.
As I said before I'll just have to live with MyWay My Web Search.

I did manage, after all, to run a check although I couldn't access the download via the desktop so I imagine this would invalidate any results. However I enclose a log file of the results. ComboFix 09-01-21.04 - Owner 2009-01-24 18:50:33.2 - NTFSx86

no sign of it there so they are just harmless left overs that only spybot worries about

*Follow these steps to uninstall Combofix and the other tools it downloaded to remove the malware*
* Click *START* then *RUN*
* Now type *Combofix /u* in the runbox and click *OK*. Note the *space* between the *X* and the *U*, it needs to be there.

Turn off system restore by following instructions here
for XP
or for Vista

That will purge the restore folder and clear any malware that has been put in there. Then reboot & then re-enable system restore & create a new restore point. Now Empty Recycle bin on desktop

go here for info on how to tighten your security settings and how to help prevent future attacks.

and scan here for out of date & vulnerable common applications on your computer

Then pay an urgent visit to windows update & make sure you are fully updated, that will help to plug the security holes that let these pests on in the first place

Hi, I looked at the bleeping computers site but couldn't find anything there relating to turning off "system restore". I got as far as uninstalling combo fix but no further. Is there a simple way of turning off system restore?None of the manuals on Vista mention anything about turning it off and on.
Thanks for the help so far.

resolved at last
Updating my last panic reaction. I enroled at the site and found the answer I needed concerning system restore. Have done all that you recommended and am now back to normal. Many, many thanks for your help, understanding and patience. It was much appreciated.
