    Hotbar is detailed in the "More Information" section on our Hotbar page:

    Hotbar - Adware - Sophos security analysis

    Mywebsearch comes under the title PUA (potentially unwanted application).

    Sophos - Removing applications

    If you need further advice feel free to email direct:

    Regards,

    Sophos Technical Support
