Sorry if this post is bad, I tried to get it in my original thread, but missed getting it in before it was closed:

When going through my "Add or Remove Programs" box, i see a "My Way Search Assistant", but there is no button to remove it.

Does anyone know what this is and/or if I can remove it without harming my comp?

You guys are extremely helpful and thank you.

hmm, weird. It doesnt show up on the hijackthis list, but it is in my Control Panel "Add/Remove Programs" list, but doesn't have a remove button.

Any ideas? It's not that big a deal, but thought I would ask.

Open HijackThis, click Config, click Misc Tools
Click "Open Uninstall Manager"
Click "Save List" (generates uninstall_list.txt)
Click Save, copy and paste the results in your next post.
