Splashtop in Adwcleaner list ?

Hey guys,
My question is, is it safe to remove it or not?

I don't think it would hurt anything to remove it. It looks like a remote desktop program like team viewer.

I don't think it is a virus however it does pose a small security risk as does any desktop viewer. I would go ahead and remove it.

I would see it as perhaps a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program)

Splashtop is a PITA. You can't even disable the add-on in IE. But you can also remove it with Revo.

Argh, after I use Adwcleaner, these pop-up keep showing up when I was going to download some security software. I can't even download any security software from BleepingComputer and my adblock doesn't seems to work either. Need help

This kind of problem does not sound like an Adware problem. It sounds more like a virus.

The scanners you can download on anothe PC and put them on a flash drive. Then run them from there.

Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
  • Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
  • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
  • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
  • Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.
As WHS said, put the file onto a flashdrive or other storage device, transfer to the suspected infected computer and follow the instructions above.

Aaaa. Yesterday, I used Eset Online Scanner and it works like a charm. No more pop-ups or annoying ads but my adblock still doesn't work like it was suppose to be. Do I still need to use Junkware Removal Tool?

P.S Sorry for troubling you guys or if I didn't follow the steps from you guys...

You dont have to do it mate, but running extra tools can always get rid of things you didnt know existed within your pc!
