How to Remove Mysearchresults.com Toolbar?

Mysearchresults.com is a malicious domain. It is a fake search engine which pretends to be a legal one. Actually it will display you fake search result with myriad ads or malicious content once you get infected with the browser hijacker virus.

 

As searchnu.com and search-results.com, Mysearchresults.com is also promoted through the use of myriad popular freeware, including Ilivid and some well known mp3 converters.  In The General Case, most users choose to install the free program via recommended installation instead of advanced installation and custom installation. When users choose to install via recommended installation, another unwanted toolbar or any program will be also installed in the system that will cause potential threat to computer system.  Let's take searchnu toolbar and AVG toolbar as an example:
