    Somehow, 'My Search Bar' has installed itself on my computer. Everytime I open my IE browser it's still there even though I uncheck it from the view-toolbars menu. How do I rid this of my computer? It's not in the uninstall menu in the control panel either. Thanks

    Is it listed in Add/Remove programs?

    To uninstall:
    Add/Remove Programs in the Windows Control Panel. Look for entries called "My Search Bar", "Search Assistant - My Search" and "My Way Speedbar".


    It can come from such programs as Grokster, Morpheus, WeatherBug, and software from mgshareware.com.
