I've been using IObit's advanced system care and other progs for a long time now, on recommendation of a techie. I have successfully told Malwarebytes not to remove it, although Mb obviously hates it. However, I've just had a problem with recurring PUPs and thought I'd turn to ADW because my current stronger package is playing silly-b's since a recent update. But it just came up with a board of pups, which included all my precious advanced system care-ware. It seemed to give me no choice but to remove these along with the troublesome 'linkury, ASK and spigot' pups which seem to be being generated from an invisible chrome extension.
My questions are: can I tell ADW not to remove advanced system care when I put it back? And can anyone tell me, if ADW hasn't removed ASK and the other two, where they might be hiding, and how I can stop them coming back?
