This persistent thing survived a system restart. The kind of restart that returns the computer to the original state, before I messed it up. I found it on the control panel and deleted it from there. I found some reference to it in the gizmos within the labyrinth of controls and the like and removed it there. But it shadows my Chrome browser, on an independently loading extra tab. Anvi Smart Defender has a free trial that their page claims will handle mysearchdial. Does anybody know if they can be trusted?

@edgarblythe,
It looks like mysearchdial is an add on for your browser.


This might help you -

I'm not sure how Chrome handles addons but there is probably a way to remove them.

I have now run the malware scan from Turbo and also the scan that comes with my computer. Neither one recognizes the search dial thing.

@edgarblythe,
Try running Spybot - Search & Destroy.
It's free and well reviewed.

@tsarstepan,
I installed and ran Spybot, after your suggestion. It returned with 0 items to be quarintined. Malware sweepers cannot recognize what I have. That's three of them that tried.

@coldjoint,
I will likely give this a try. I am tired now and will have to do it this evening or tomorrow. Thanks to all of you.

Did you look in the add/removed software feature in the control panel as my bet is like the ask toolbar you might find it and removed it there.

Yes you can do so here is the link

footnote as annoying as it might be it is not consider malware so your anti-malware programs are unlikely to deal with it.

@BillRM,
My first move was to remove it at the control panel. Then I found reference to it in other parts of the computer and removed it there. I can't find anything else that references it, but still it shadows my Chrome browser.

Problem solved. I went to settings and then extensions on Chrome's tools and deleted the last vestiges of it.
