AdwCleaner will not install on Win10 64-bit PC

Hello,

It looks like AdwCleaner (any version above 7.0.5.0) will not install on my Win 10 64bit PC after it was updated with MS's Fall Creator's Update. When trying to install versions 7.0.70 and the current 7.0.8.0 I get an error stating,       "This app can't run on your PC. To find a version for your PC, check with the software publisher" This happens if I try to install as administrator, u...

Re: AdwCleaner update (7.0.8.0) not retained.

So nobody can tell me why the newly released update to 7.0.8.0 will not download to my PC.  Is this update even real?  Malwarebytes release history does not mention anything other than 7.0.7.0. ANYBODY?????

Hello,

I don't use Malwarebytes after the huge changes. Count on Adw, JRT,  & MBAE. I hope you live long, so Corporate won't take control.

What "huge changes" are you referring to?

System Restore Point. Was taking up to much space for Microsoft, so they cut its abilities. Appears you have to use 3rd Party, Restore Point Creator. You must make it ahead o...

Re: adwcleaner

Greetings,

AdwCleaner 7.x no longer works on Windows XP machines. If that's what you were asking?

Please try the 6th branch (no longer updated): https://toolslib.net/downloads/viewdownload/1-adwcleaner/files/851/

Also, you could give a try to Malwarebytes (which is still compatible with Windows XP): https://toolslib.net/downloads/viewdownload/309-malwarebytes/

Regards.

Re: PUP \SysNative\drivers\mrxsmb22.sys

Just did another search, the last trace of it is no longer found. All gone. Did completly nothing, the last one went away on its own.

Hello,

First of all sorry for the late answer.

So, "SysNative" is in fact redirecting to System32. This meens that "mrxsmb22.sys" is reappearing after the clean process.

Can you try with Malwarebytes as well?

Let me know if you need some more details.

Regards.

Re: PUP.Legacy.Optional - 3 Threats Identified

I found this thread while looking for answer to my own pup issues and signed up to say thanks.  What worked for me was uninstalling Chrome and then running Malwarebytes Adwcleaner. Ran it a second time and with Chrome uninstalled a got a clean scan this time. Before that it would identify Pup.Legacy.Optional. I would clean it but when I would run it a second time it would be back again.  After ...
