    Default PUPSC - MyWay.WebSearch removal?

    My computer has recently been invaded by about 6 trojon virus' and have seemed to leave me with a PUPSC - MyWay.WebSearch which seems to have changed a registry key in HKEY User's... Was wondering if anyone knows how to get rid of it because SPYBOT keeps saying it can't because it's being used - yet no matter how many times it starts on reboot it still can't get rid of it?

    Thanks
    Sigs

    Can you run a scan with Spybot-SD in 'Safe Mode' and see if that removes it?

    If not, then you'll have to start your own thread in the Malware Removal Forums.

Although it may appear to be a similar, or even the exact same problem, very often the same symptoms on different system are caused by very different error conditions.

    RIGHT click icon and select 'run as administrator' open SPYBOT and scan, this will enable you to remove all selected items. John:

    Smile PUPSC removal method

    If you're still having problems with MyWay.MySearch PUPSC removal, I did a recent scan and had 181 problems listed although Norton and McAfee didn't acknowledge a problem. Since Spybot wouldn't premit me to remove via Recovery, I reran the program as an Administrator. When only a portion was removed I restarted the computer, reran the program and successfully removed the remaining programs. This is a time consuming method but it works. I've run into the problem on three laptops and used this method successfully on each. Be prepared, if you have a lot on your computer, to devote 2-3 hours for cleaning up the malware.

    Hi maitrise,

    to Safer Networking Forums.

    Good method.

    If one of you detects new variants of MyWebSearch, contact me (HJT or DDS logfiles would be good) and I'll create detection rules for TeamSpybot.

    Take care.

    Happy Safe Surfing!
    Best regards - Beste Grüße,

    Matt
