Thank you Lembi, however, I already had removed what I thought was everything of My Web Search.

I also have now recieved:
"The Application Layer Gateway Service service failed to start due to the following error:
The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion. "
"Timeout (30000 milliseconds) waiting for the Application Layer Gateway Service service to connect."
