Adwcleaner detection back

Recommended Posts


I scanned my laptop with adwcleaner. It detected something like "HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\\Classes\CLSID\{8BF0126F-A5B7-4720-ABB2-2414A0AF5474}". I moved it to quarantine, then deleted it. I'm attaching logs of adwcleaner logs.

After deleting this, I scanned my laptop with Kaspersky (full scan with extreme settings) and Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit/Malware. None of these AV detected anything.

I'm also attaching FRST and MBAM logs.

The last 6 AdwCleaner logs do not show a detection or removal, so all should be okay at this point.

You're running Kaspersky Security Cloud which is an good antivirus product. Check for updates and do a full system scan again (you already said you did one) with Kaspersky and you should be good.

There does not appear to be any issues listed as far as malware in the logs

Let's go ahead and do some clean-up work and remove the tools and logs we've run.

Please download KpRm by kernel-panik and save it to your desktop.

  • right-click kprm_(version).exe and select Run as Administrator.
  • Read and accept the disclaimer.
  • When the tool opens, ensure all boxes under Actions are checked.
  • Under Delete Quarantines select Delete Now, then click Run.
  • Once complete, click OK.
  • A log will open in Notepad titled kprm-(date).txt.
  • Please attach that file to your next reply. (not compulsory)

I asked here about "HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\\Classes\CLSID\{8BF0126F-A5B7-4720-ABB2-2414A0AF5474}". It was some time ago. I deleted it and scanned with Kaspersky and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware/Rootkit. None of these AV detected anything.

I scanned laptop few times again after this. Everyhting was fine. I did adwcleaner scan today and it detected "HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\\Classes\CLSID\{8BF0126F-A5B7-4720-ABB2-2414A0AF5474}" again.

I think it happened after installing Steam Music Maker, but I'm not sure. I uninstalled and installed it again. I don't know why but adwcleaner always detect this after uninstalling or installing this Steam Music Maker. I checked it few times.

I downloaded it from Steam. Also i didn't installed any suspicious programs. I have kaspersky security cloud free version and it also didn't detected anything. I'm attaching some logs to this.

Ok, thanks.

I said this showed again after installing Steam Music Maker. I think it showed after steam installed some additional thinghs for this. Idk why but this is showing after uninstlling too. Any other AV didn't detected anything again.

Now I scanned laptop few times with adwcleaner and it didn't detected anything again, so it could be caused by Steam Music Maker.

So this is false positive or something like this. Thanks again for help.
