changing default search provider to google

Question Hi I need urgent help! When I type into the address bar to search for something, the search is done through mywebsearch. I hate mywebsearch and I know I have to go to keyword.url and reset it, and it will go back to google. It used to work. However, now, after I reset keyword.url and search from the address bar, the first search is conducted through google but it immediately revert back to mywebsearch and i get so irritated!! I have tried this sooo many times but it does not work! Please help me!

My Websearch is a Adware, Do a malware check with some malware scan programs. You need to scan with all programs because each program detects different malware. Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of the database before doing a scan.
