Re: Error ADW

Could you try restarting your PC in safe mode with networking, install Malwarebytes, do a full scan with them and then attempt to scan with AdwCleaner. 

Before that, you could also use RKill to kill any malicious software before using anti-malware. Let me know if this helps.

Re: False positives?

Could be a delayed update. Sometimes, if you haven't restart your PC for long enough or have software in some specific environments, it can cause issues with the update. (Not sure or confirmed about this, just theorizing)

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

Re: Potential false positives?

If they weren't detected as major threats or some form of issues you should be good to go. AdwCleaner should clean up any actually malicious software, but other than that, you don't need to worry. If you want, you can do a full thorough system scan just in case. Avast full scan. Mbam, AdwCleaner and Hitman Pro, additionally use CCleaner to clean up your registry and cache files and you are set!

Re: PUP.Legacy.Optional - 3 Threats Identified

Well.... My previous solution in Windows "Safe mode with networking" should help you out if you haven't done that. Alternatively, you could try using RKill to kill malicious software first. Then remove the identified files manually, afterward do a thorough scan with Malwarebytes, AdwCleaner, and HitmanPro. This should definitely yield some results.
