Ports, applications, accessibility. Maybe your other device is used a lot less, you haven't messed with any ports or have any applications that require forwarding.

No1: PUP.Optional.YahooChrome.     Registry[HKLM] SOFTWARE\Yahoo\SS

Haw, can I remove it?

Re: False Positive v7?

Re: PUP.Legacy.Optional

Addition to your protection, you can also add some form of Adblock to your security arsenal. uBlock does wonders blocking malicious pop-ups, and you will not get any scareware that might concern you in any way.

Re: Error ADW

I guess, i found out, where the error came from.  After the scan has finished, following screen can be seen:

Re: Download and 3rd party providers

Not in particular. I was surfing other forums, Norton, Kaspersky and in general tech and cyber security forums, and a lot of people have installation issues. Even when downloading from your website and official sources. I have also read plenty of entries in this forum about people not being able to install the software properly

As for 3rd Party providers FileHippo??? uptodown? Cnet? Toms guide...
