You will need to download Spy Ferret to remove the mysearchnow tool bar It's a great utility that gets rid of all those annoying tool bars Here's a link to download Spy Ferret: http://www.onlinepcfix.com/spyware/spyware.htm

Simply connect to the internet and input the following website into your address bar and follow the instructions on the page to download the program If you have accidentally deleted the 'Add and Remove Programs' from your Control Panel you will be able to get it back by performing a computer restore Click on Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore You computer automatically creates restore points Simply follow the instructions in the System Restore wizard to restore your computer back to an earlier date Try restoring back a month early just to be on the safe side If this solution does not seem to work for you, another option you have is re-installing your operating system So wipe clean those dusty re-installation cd(s) that came along with your computer when you first purchased it and pop them into your cd-rom Follow the instructions on the monitor to complete the re-installation Good Luck!!
