Malware suspected; found "My Web Search"
This computer has been running very slow and erratically. I am 99% sure that the problem is malware.
I found a lot of junk and removed many suspicious looking toolbars and programs from Programs/Devices in the CP. I also saw "My Web Search" on the list but it could not be removed.
Also note numerous "My WEb Search" instances in the registry but I doubt if I got them all.
I have downloaded, installed and ran a thorough Windows Security Essentials which came up cleaning.
I also downloaded, installed and ran a thorough Malwarebytes scan.
