    You don't have to get the key back. It was a sign of a malware infection

    Yeah it's a bad program. If MyWebSearch or anything like that is still on your computer just uninstall it.. It's bad software. Spys on your computer, tracks where you go and what you do.

    Better still use a combination of antispyware / av / and firewall to protect yourself online
