Ok so I have the same dell dimension 3000 my way search assistant issue that has been mentioned elsewhere. Tried to find the file and delete it manually but when I did a search for 62e8.msi which was the file that others had found I came up dry. I have an updated adaware and spybot that I use regularly and thankfully I have had no other problems since installing them. The link on the dell website that supposedly told how to get rid of this has been deleted. You know someone should do an expose on dell and that they do this stuff...truly ticks me off won't be buying form them again that is for sure.
