The actual hard drive location and folder is also listed below for you, as you can always verify where its located on your hard drive, as this makes sure it is not spyware, adware, or virus related. Sometimes the spyware or virus writers simply place a similiar or same named file elsewhere on your computer hoping to fool you into thinking the rogue software is a good software module instead. This 2psrchmn.exe is used to try to force you to use the search engine mywebsearch, this is adware related software and if it was on my computer I would remove it immediately unless you really like this type of thing. I also consider this hijack related as it exchanges information with a remote server. This is a toolbar that runs in your web browser.
