They're just running an embedded custom Google search. Lots of sites do it.

I regard MyWebSearch as malware but it's a personal choice thing. Fortunately, a lot of people choose it and I stay in business cleaning up their systems. :D

ExterminateIt regards MyWebSearch as malware. This is what they recommended for complete removal:



How to Remove MyWebSearch from Your Computer

To completely purge MyWebSearch from your computer, you need to delete the files, folders, and Windows registry keys, and registry values associated with MyWebSearch.

Correction, ExterminateIt referred to it as adware, which I guess is not as bad as malware.
