If you have tried downloading freeware, your PC is at risk of adware and malware. You know, MyWebSearch is bundled with the software you can download for free (not all though). Be careful because I have been a victim of that. Looking for some free downloadable stuffs, I did not know how MyWebSearch was installed in my PC. Unlike common installations, MyWebSearch cannot be removed via Control Panel.
MyWebSearch became my browsers’ default search engine / homepage! I was upset. I couldn’t remove it in any way! Avast Premier was not able to remove it, as well. What did I exactly do to remove it? I have looked for forums and scanned several threads about the perfect anti-virus or anti-malware that can remove MyWebSearch!
I have found Malwarebytes! Just to make it clear, Avast and Malwarebytes are different things. Avast is antivirus and Malwarebytes is pretty specific – anti-malware! As I’ve read opinions from tech-savvy guys, I’ve learned that Avast and Malwarebytes are compatible. That means that I can install both!
Malwarebytes has solved my problem! MyWebSearch has been removed together with other adware and malware!
Do you have the same problem? Try Malwarebytes. For me, and for many other guys out there, Avast and Malwarebytes are two things you should have in your PC. I have an Avast Premier and Free Malwarebytes. Avast free anti-virus is just fine. I have used the free versions of Avast for several years before I switched to Premier.
Have a great day!
