As I understand you have Safari on an Apple machine?
If that is the case, try searching for leftover files that have "Mysearch-engine.net" in their name in these directories:

If your computer is slow, then you might have some other malware on your computer and should scan your PC with an anti-malware program. I recommend Spy Hunter, Malwarebytes or StopZilla. I hope that solves your problem. Write back with feedback and if you have further questions!
