How to remove (uninstall) Myway Search Assistant

Myway Search Assistant is an advertising program: the software that is completely useless and does not have a single useful function. Except that, Myway Search Assistant causes serious damage to the PC generally, and the amount of detriment grows more and more until the tool stays inside the PC. Most adware are created by group of hackers. Other hackers who use them simply replace the logo, in uncommon cases adding small changes, and more often not adding any changes, simply by purchasing a pre-set package for sale of the advertising utility in Dark Web.

Advertising tools permit web-criminals to receive thousands of dollars daily while staying in total safety. Naturally, the largest frauds like botnets, including myriads of PC's, engage the attention of government, but smaller games, in most cases go unchallenged.
