Finally! Hijacked search engine

Finally I have managed to find out how to get rid of mysearch. It had hijacked my search engine and anytime I tried to just type in a search in the address bar it would go to mysearch.com. I hated it. I have tried a bazillion different ways to get rid of it. I have searched the entire computer. I have uninstalled anything remotely related to mysearch. Thanks to this fabulous program, Hijack This! I found the BHO (I've already forgotten what BHO stands for) that was responsible for mysearch. I deleted it and it now uses MSN as my default search engine. That makes me oh so very happy. It has been over a year since I've been trying to get rid of mysearch. Ahh. Success!
