  • Description

    This file is the Webfetti Browser Plugin Loader.  Webfetti is part of the Fun Web products suite which includes the My Way website portal and Smiley Central.  The Webfetti toolbar is used to add cute stuff such as smileys to social networking sites.  At the very least, this toolbar slows down browser speed.  When installing this software, the search engine may be changed to MyWebSearch, in which case, the program folder name will be MyWebSearch instead of Webfetti.

Disclaimer

It is assumed that users are familiar with the operating system they are using and comfortable with making the suggested changes. BleepingComputer.com will not be held responsible if changes you make cause a system failure.

This is NOT a list of tasks/processes taken from Task Manager or the Close Program window (CTRL+ALT+DEL) but a list of startup applications, although you will find some of them listed via this method. Pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL identifies programs that are currently running - not necessarily at startup. Therefore, before ending a task/process via CTRL+ALT+DEL just because it has an "X" recommendation, please check whether it's in MSCONFIG or the registry first. An example would be "svchost.exe" - which doesn't appear in either under normal conditions but does via CTRL+ALT+DEL. If in doubt, don't do anything.
