Error loading C:\PROGRA~1\MYWEBS~1\bar\2.bin\M3PLUGIN.DLL__ The spedified module could not be found.

I'm using windows vista 32, loaded Comcast toolbar yesterday, it's the only thing that I installed, I trusted it.  Today I boot up and get the message below. 

Error loading C:\PROGRA~1\MYWEBS~1\bar\2.bin\M3PLUGIN.DLL
  The spedified module could not be found.

I tried system restore, but I am getting an error message with that and it will not restore my system. 

I uninstalled the Comcast toolbar but I still get this message.  I don't remember any mywebsearch toolbar.  I searched for it and can not find it on my system. 

What should I do next?  HELP!!!

Go to Control Panel > Programs and Features and uninstall My Web Search .  Reboot.

If that doesn't fix it, use the free Autoruns tool fromWindows Sysinternals to find and remove the reference to the file.
