A while back I installed iMesh but then uninstalled it by going to Computer > Unistall or Change a Programme

But even now, when I open a new tab it takes me to the imesh search bar, and when typing a search into the browser bar, it searches it with imesh

How do I uninstall it completely from my computer and internet explorer?

Manage Add-Ons menu is also available in IE6 under Tools\Program Tab. –  user84878 Jun 8 '11 at 4:58

It's annoying but simple - the Imesh add-on is not part of the program itself, and needs to be uninstalled seperately from the downloading program itself. I don't recall exactly what the add-on is called but look through your list - if it's still there I assure you you will find another program called imesh.

That worked thanks. I went into mangae add ons and disabled Name UrlHelper Class Publisher iMesh, Inc. Status Disabled File date Wednesday, 10 August 2011, 12:35 a.m. Version 3.0.0.46593 Load time (0.00 s) Yay! –  user95780 Aug 28 '11 at 7:56

The user-friendly way will be running free anti-spyware software, though it requires installation and a multi-hour scan that may or may not find your problem.

Manually, you might want to see if your homepage was redirected under Tools \ internet options \ General Tab.

If you have anything newer than IE6, then you can probably delete it via Tools \ Manage Add-Ons. On the left, look inside Toolbars and Extensions and also in Search Providers, and from the lists on the right, select the offending iMesh parts and click on Remove.

Welcome, and good luck. You can comment under here if you need more assistance.
