My Log after scanning with Malwarebytes first scan

Recommended Posts

link to first post:


but my daughter ran the scan last night and cleaned up a lot-- but the computer was still EXTREMEMLY slow and that my was search Assistant is still there and although it is probably not what is causeing my computer to be annoyingly slow.

Has anyone else ran into this My Way Search Assisstant?

So should I try the longer scan or move to something different.

If this is the one from DELL that I'm thinking of then hopefully this one should do the trick.

I have a couple methods.


MyWay.com offers this uninstaller for the My Way Search Assistant that was

often installed on Dell and other computer vendors.


For Dell "My Way" one of the older GUID ID was 78d944d7-a97b-4004-ab0a-b5ad06839940

On a Dell you can try the Windows Installer removal method.

Click on Start - Run and type in:

msiexec.exe /x{78d944d7-a97b-4004-ab0a-b5ad06839940}

I would try the MyWay uninstaller first though as this GUID may not be the

correct one for your system.


Save the contents of the CODE box to a new NOTEPAD document. Then Save As "REMOVEMYWAY.REG" make sure you keep the quote marks on the Save As file name. Then double click on it to remove. Reboot and it should be gone now.

Let me know if one of the methods works or not and which one.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00




You should also run this tool so we can double check what might be running Malware wise on the box.

and save it to your desktop

Disable any script blocker if your Anti-Virus/Anti-Malware has it.

Once downloaded you can disconnect from the Internet and disable your Ant-Virus temporarily if needed.

Then double click
to run the tool.

When done, the
will open.

Click Yes at the next prompt for Optional Scan.
    When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:

  1. DDS.txt
  2. Attach.txt

  • Save both reports to your desktop
