Adware.MyWebSearch/FunWebProducts

Just done a Norton / MalwareBytes / SUPERAntispyware scan. SUPERAntispyware found the following:


Adware.MyWebSearch/FunWebProducts
 HKCR\CLSID\{9AFB8248-617F-460d-9366-D71CDEDA3179}
 HKCR\CLSID\{9AFB8248-617F-460d-9366-D71CDEDA3179}\TreatAs

Since it's in the Registry I put it as allow for now. I looked it up on Google, but to be truthful I really don't know what I'm looking at. Anyone have any suggestions? Has anyone heard of this?

Hi

MyWebSearch is known adware, you can safely remove it. It is often installed along with Nero software, do you have that installed?

Thanks

Hi johna,

No,  I don't have any Nero software installed. So it is still safe to remove it because I don't want to wipe out any programs I'm using being that this is in the registry?

Hi

Yes it is safe to remove those entries,

Nero 8, is bundled with the ask bar.
