  1. I have no known problems but thought I'd scan to be sure. No way I'm going to let AdwCleaner mess with this folder without knowing more. What might this be telling me and does it seem odd? Windows 10 Version 1809 Build 17763.805 Thank you!
  2. How can I identify a folder to scan? I've mirrored a wordpress site that is infected with malware and would like to scan it
  3. I created a Coupons folder on my Windows 7 desktop, and when I ran adwcleaner_7.2.4.0.exe it identified the folder as PUP.Optional.Spigot.Generic and quarantined it. Making a new Coupons folder there leads to the same behavior. Creating a Coupons folder on the desktop of a different Windows 7 computer and on a different Windows 10 computer desktop gave the same behavior. I would attach the empty Coupons folder, but that does not seem to be an accepted type. I suggest you test it by creating a Coupons folder and running adwcleaner. Creating a Coupons folder elsewhere did not give a false positive. This would seem to be a false-alarm problem with significant consequences if a user's desktop Coupons folder contains valuable coupons, discount codes, etc. only to have them deleted by quarantine.
  4. Hello, could someone help me with this one, just a question about folder exclusions, in my last experience with antivirus software normally if I excluded a folder it means that all files and folder below it will be automatically excluded from virus scanning. Does Malwarebytes do that or I need to add to the Exclusions List all individuals folders and files below a root folder? Thanks Bill
