  1. Perhaps we need another trusted advisor without commenting anything, to just post a link with instructions on removing the adware where the screenshots point to Google Chrome infection even though we mentioned it's IE. Maybe that will open our eyes.
  2. I got this one too. Seems weird. I'm clean for well over a decade. Opening the registry entry that's pointed in AdwCleaner, I don't see anything shady.
  3. Huh, interesting. Before reading your reply, I uninstalled Malwarebytes normally through add/remove. Installed again, did a scan, again it took 6 minutes. Now I re-installed with the support tool, and the scan took 3m15s I guess things are back to normal. Thank you for all your help.
  4. Hi I did my usual scan with Malwarebytes and it took 6 minutes. My last 20-30 scans always were 2-3 minutes tops. I haven't installed any new program, didn't update any driver, didn't copy any significant number of files, no windows updates... What's up? Samsung 970 Evo SSD ryzen 2600x win10 1903 x64
  5. Hi Can you tell me why desktop Malwarebytes finds Adware.FusionCore but when I upload the file on Virustotal.com Malwarebytes doesn't flag it? https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/f12cf33d7d9aa2922452db264ffb82cc50fac4abc765553d799720ea465aa6bd/detection
  6. Thanks for taking a look into it.
  7. Hi Potplayer autoupdated itself few days ago. I now did a scan with Malwarebytes and it found this (it was in temp folder but I transferred it to another folder so i can copy on a virtual machine) https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/07834aec356f5ae44357b41d231f19345e315b629c7767b6d23f8e4a0cb60f4f/detection I did a full scan with Malwarebytes, it found nothing. Then, tried installing the above mentioned .exe (thought that the adware skipped my system because it was an autoupdate), on a virtual machine and there was no adware in the installer for checking/unchecking except for the last step shown below Now this OpenCodec has been with PotPlayer for a while, and I don't think that's the culprit. I read this but while installing I wasn't asked for McAfee webadvisor or any other similar thing. I did a fullscan on the virtual machine, Malwarebytes found nothing.
  8. Google Chrome had no bad plugins/extensions, I checked them manually too. I think it doesn't scan. This is the second time I'm cleaning a computer "infected" with bad sites allowed in Google Chrome notifications and the scans were clean. I doubt that MWB and ADW both times missed these. Too bad I didn't remember the sites. If I come across a similar "infection" again, I'll make sure to post it here.
  9. Hi So I was called up by my uncle, telling me he had annoying and nasty pop ups when using Google Chrome. I used my usual, Malwarebytes and AdwCleaner and they came up clean but the ads were still showing up. Turns out, in Google Chrome notifications there were bad sites allowed. Removing them from the allowed list got rid off the annoying ads. Does Malwarebytes and AdwCleaner scan the notifications part of Google Chrome or not?
