Ok guys, I’ve searched and searched, and found a full proof way to remove the stubborn MWSA from the A/R list which untill now could not be removed. If this specific method has been explained before, I’m sorry, but I just got it to work for me and thought it would help other people.

Go to: Start
Click on: Run
Copy and Paste: msiexec.exe /x{78d944d7-a97b-4004-ab0a-b5ad06839940}

Hit enter, click yes if it prompts, and boom, your done! That easy, no HJT, or adware removal bs.

Lemme know if this helps anyone at all.

It works!

  37. thank you sooo much, i was up all night running every single antispyware program i could find but nothing seemed to be working. thank you

  38. Too, too cool. Thx a million, Jade.

  39. Hi – this worked for me also. Thank you Jade!! I still have an error popping up in my alerts that adware-ZangoSA has been blocked and do I want to remove it. I hit block it / remove it and it still keeps coming up. Anyone have any ideas on this??? Unless it was related to the my way search assistant and maybe now it is gone?

  40. I’ve spent hours and hours scanning and removing adware but could never get it totally clean – it finally dawned on me that this “My Way” uninstallable app must be generating the pop-ups! Your solution worked like a charm ; I’m still waiting with fingers crossed that no more pop-ups occur!
    Thanks so Much

  41. It worked! 😀
    Thank you so much, Jade!!!
    You’ve been a great help!

  70. If this solution didn’t work for you, does the removal process just stop? Or does it crash your computer or something? Also, is My web search bar the same as My Way Search Bar? Does this solution work for windows XP or is it confined to only one system?
