Re: False Positives

Hello,

Thanks for the feedback. We're looking at it right now. :)

Regards

Re: False Positives

I got the exact same results after downloading version 7.2.2, so it probably is a FP.

Re: False Positives

The items listed under domains in the original post will have been given a value of 4 in the registry.  This figure means they are "blocked" (by SpywareBlaster or whatever) so should never be reported by ADWCleaner.  We have had this type of FP before so it seems ADWCleaner needs to be programmed to ignore those with that value.

Re: False Positives

Is this still being looked at (see first response)?  I am using 7.2.1 instead.

Re: False Positives

I ran the most recent version a couple days ago, and yes, those results still show up...
