GamesBar

Recommended Posts

Hi,

The Malwarebytes software identifies Oberon GamesBar as an Adware. This is a false positive.

The GamesBar is a legitiamte browser add on (toolbar) which is distributed with Oberon's game downloads which users explicitly select to install from the biggest game sites on the network that Oberon Media operates like MSN zone, Pogo, AT&T etc...

Check the games on http://download-games.pogo.com/ or http://www.iplay.com/index.aspx.

Thanks,

Ilan

It would expedite things if you could also zip and attach an actual copy of the dll.

There is something odd in your scan log as well. The reason this dll is detected has either been edited out or many objects have been set to ignore. Here is what you should be seeing:

DLL file attached.

I used the scanner with default settings and performed a quick scan so I'm not sure why the log is different than expected. I sent the log file as is, and didn't edit out anything.

The question still remains - why does the software identifies this dll as adware and what are the next steps to resolution?

It does not identify the attached file as adware though. The detection is far more involved and unrelated to the file alone. Until we resolve why only the file is being detected on your system (and the developers log shows that more was detected yet is missing) we cant proceed.

Are you 100% sure that you did not set much of this detection to ignore? That is the only thing that explains this aside from the log being modified.
