Thanks, it sure is fixed now, WOW that was fast!

What about the other items it found, it was like 7 or 8. Those other items were delelted or removed before the fix

Only the 3 mentioned were not removed.

So are we now missing something from Adobe, or will thinks be ok?

MBAM has very good component link detection and all it took was a single hit on a single component for all of that to be detected so it was easy to fix .

Hi,

I got an error msg "Error Code 725 (5,0) when I tried to restore the FP for the following entry:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Acrobat\ActiveX\AcroIEHelper.dll (Adware.Cinmus)

The 6 registry keys were restored. What do I do about the file?

Kay
