PUP.Optional.WinRepairPro


Recommended Posts

Hi there, after installing this video player (Splash 2.0) from the official website  : https://mirillis.com/en/products/splash-free-hd-video-player.html

I have two PUP.Optional detected by Adwcleaner : AdwCleaner[S9].txt

False positives ? Or should i worry and delete these registry entries ?

i made two screenshots maybe it can help :

While waiting for an answer i tried to delete these registry entries with Adwcleaner but i noticed if i launch the video player these same entries are regenerated.

Hello Yom_,

Those are not false detections.  If removing them adversely affects the video player you can either ignore those detections, or try to find another free video player that is not bundled with adware.  A lot of people use VLC Player,

Thank you for your reply Ried.

Can i know what adware is installed with the video player ? I'm pretty sure it's not WinRepair Pro because i don't see any registry entries, files or folders from this thread :

Also i have Malwarebytes Premium and strangely it does not detect anything :c

Can you run FRST64.exe and send me the logs please?

You can download the 64-bit version from here  https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/FRST64

•Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to the disclaimer.

Note: If you are prompted by Windows SmartScreen, click More info followed by Run anyway.

•Click the Scan button.

•When the scan has finished, it will save 2 logs in the same directory the tool was run from. Please attach the following logs in your reply.

I'm sorry, Yom_  somehow I lost my notifications for this thread.

I'm not seeing anything else active in the logs.  All I can tell you is if removing those causes the Splash player to no longer work then either uncheck and don't remove those, or perhaps find another video player. :(

No prob :) I tried to delete these registry entries with Adwcleaner but i noticed if i launch again the video player these same entries are regenerated automatically. I thought this video player was safe cause i analyzed on Virustotal and Malwarebytes the setup program and there are no detections found... Anyway thanks for your help.
