Problem Summary: I can't remove MySearch Dial

MalwareBytes does not remove this. It keeps coming with different names. How do I get rid of this? I have tried numerous times.

Problem was successfully solved. Ticket was closed.

Problem Summary: Need technical details for MySearchDial

I am the Security Admin for a university. We found MySearchDial installed on one of our servers. I need to determine how large the exposure was to us. Specifically, how it was installed and what it really does after it is installed (ie. does it proxy, capture data, redirect, try to infect other computers, etc)?

We found the instructions for removal, but I need to confirm none of our data or access has been exposed. Can you help me?

Problem was successfully solved. Ticket was closed.
