It likely changed your browser's default homepage and search engine. To remove it, follow these steps:
1. Uninstall "websearches" using the control panel > Add or Remove programs.
2. Since I do not know what browser you're using, I will use Chrome as an example. Go to settings in the top right and click "Manage search engines..". Make google (or whatever else you want) the default. Delete websearches from the list of search engines.
3. Above the manage search engines button you will see a blue "Change" link next to new tab page. Delete any websearches entry listed.
The process is similar and you will need to repeat this for all web browsers.

Thanks 4 your help. I am in the Settings/ Search engines mini window.
I do have the webssearches default, but it does not has the X to make default, actually it is so smart they have manage to not put it.
Strange and very wise of these people.

Sorry I should have been more clear. You can't remove a search engine until you have one to replace it. In the "Other search engines" look for Google, hover over it, and select "Make default" You will now be able to hover over the websearches entry and an "X" should appear to remove it.
