How to Remove MyWebFace Toolbar from Mozilla and Google Chrome Without Anti-virus

MyWebFace is a toolbar that installs as an Extension or Add-on in web browsers such as Mozilla, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer and takes over the functions of these browsers. From a personal experience, MyWebFace causes a number of problems that interfere with your browsing experience. Here are some major problems that I experienced after MyWebFace installed into my web browsers:

1. Your web browser will hang a lot causing poor browsing experience when you do your searches.
2. Most of the searches will lead to unwanted or irrelevant websites.
3. Most searches will show sponsored adverts
4. MyWebFace promotes third-party search engines especial MyWebSearch and MyStartSearch
5. MyWebFace causes lots of pop-up adds

If you have a good anti-virus software installed on your computer, removing MyWebFace may be few clicks away. However, if you do not have any anti-virus installed in your PC, there are a few process that you need to accomplish in your Mozilla and Google Chrome web browsers.
