What is Update for MySearchDial?

Such third party applications are typically installed onto users’ computers by default, but may include an option to ‘opt-out’ during or after the installation process.


Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins.
