MyWebSearch, also known as MyWay Speedbar, MyWay Searchbar, MyWay Search Assistant or MyWeb Searchbar, is a spyware and search toolbar program that allows the user to query Google, Ask Jeeves, Yahoo!, and LookSmart search engines. HP and Dell pre-install this software on some of their commercially sold PCs. [1][2][3] It is also bundled with some versions of Kazaa.[4] It is also a part of the FunWebProducts suite of utilities such as Smiley Central, Webfetti, Cursor Mania, My Mail Stationary, My Mail Signature, My Mail Stamps, FunBuddyIcons, PopSwatter, and Popular Screensavers. Because it tracks browsing habits, the MyWay Searchbar is classified as spyware and/or adware.[5][6][7]
