Search Assistant - My Search in my add/remove section of the control panel...i don't see it anywhere else, but when i try to remove, it gives me a blank window with this in the blue top:

Res://c:\progra~1\MyWay\SrchAsst\1.bin\mysrchas.dll/101

...and then does nothing.

I've run current CWshredder, NoAdware, Ad-aware 6.0 and have spybot S&D and spyware blaster loaded...I come up clean across the board.
