Stuck on Removal Instructions for Adups

Recommended Posts

So I'm trying to remove an infection called pup.riskware.autoins.fota.ins on my Android which is called Access Wireless (Android version 7.1.1) Model TW801  and after following the instructions here from this link 

https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/216616-removal-instructions-for-adups/

At step number 5, I typed in the command "adb shell pm list packaged -f", but it giving me a message saying "adb is not recognized as an internal or external command operable program or batch file".

Could it have something to do with the environment path? I understand it said I must set a path and then it mentions: (Path is usually C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Android\Sdk\platform-tools\)

but I'm not sure what this means? I coped that in system under values and just made up a value name titled ADB, but that didn't work. Is there something I'm doing that's incorrect regarding the path? If so, what do I have to do? Thanks for any help out there.

Hello @LostShaolin and :welcome:

Unfortunately you have started this topic in a Microsoft Windows related subforum.

I will ask this forum's management to move your topic to the most appropriate subforum for an Android powered product.

Thank you.

I apologize @1PW, that instruction guide was post under this section, so I assume and decided to post under this same section since my question was in response towards that.

But still, anybody have an idea on why the command "adb shell pm list packaged -f" is not working on step 5? I've already finished installing Android studios. My guess is I have to put a specific path under environment variables, but I don't know what I have type or whether if it goes under "User Variables" or "System Variables"

Another update on my current status on what I've done so far, after re-reading, I think I might have a little clear understanding on what I needed to do. According to the guide with the link provided and if I'm correct on this, it seems I needed to go under System Variables and find a Variable called "Path", edit the value, add a semicolon first at the end of the path and then add C:\Users\"my username"\AppData\Local\Android\Sdk\platform-tools.

However, even after getting all that done, now when I enter "adb shell pm list packages -f", all I get is "error: no devices/emulators found" and nothing that is listing com.adups.fota and/or com.adups.fota.sysoper.

Update so far: It seems I forgot download and install Google USB driver and that solved the error problem.

After typing in adb shell pm list packages -f in command prompt, the only package names I found were

package:/system/priv-app/SystemFota/SystemFota.apk=com.fota.wirelessupdate but there was not mention of

 com.adups.fota and/or com.adups.fota.sysoper. Should I still process towards the next step?
