    this is from the uninstall file in my folder.
    they have mywebseach as well as funwebproducts
    installed in the registry.

    [Uninstall]
    DelReg=mySrchAs.Del.Reg,DelUninstallKey

    [DelUninstallKey]
    HKLM, SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\MyWebSearchSearchAssistant

    [mySrchAs.Del.Reg]
    HKCR,"MyWebSearchSearchAssistant.Auxiliary.1"
    HKCR,"MyWebSearchSearchAssistant.Auxiliary"
    HKCR,"CLSID\{00A6FAF1-072E-44cf-8957-5838F569A31D}"
    HKCR,"CLSID\{00A6FAF4-072E-44cf-8957-5838F569A31D}"
    HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Browser Helper Objects\{00A6FAF1-072E-44cf-8957-5838F569A31D}"

    hope this helps

    Hi passin_by........I've got rid of anything 'Mywebsearch or funproducts' from registry, but still appears in 'Add & Remove' ?

    Don't like to be beaten ! must be away ?


    Motherboards suggestion does work, but just removes it but not completely ?

    Thx Again !
    ;)
