Re: General Question about AdsFix

Greetings. Please do paste the log. Also, weird reaction, it shouldn't take 4 hours for 50%. It could have been malware trying to prevent further execution of the software, had that happen before. And I am not sure if there is a way to recover your files, official representatives should comment on this matter.

Today I stumbled upon this detection whilst using Adwcleaner

***** [ Registry ] *****

PUP.Optional.YahooChrome, [Key] - HKLM\SOFTWARE\Yahoo\SS

Afterwards I scanned with other virusscanners (Malwarebytes, MBAR, and Roguekiller) and none of them detected aforementioned registery key. Thus, it seems like a false positive generated by adwcleaner.

Re: AdwCleaner

Greetings, hopefully, you can understand English. With the power invested in my by Google Translate, I will attempt to answer your questions.

Re: More false positives

Yesterday the Windows 10 machine from my wife was scanned by and referred Zylom games and TryMedia as suspicious. Removal of it all led to no gaming anymore because these files (and dirs) are apearently necessary to run and check validation of the Zylom Games. Such a shame because a noob does not understand that.
