Windows 7: 7201 Adware On Install ?

Here is an entry on Malwarebytes support forum. I'm betting these are false positives from a recent Malwarebytes update. Probably malwarebytes/Spywareblaster entry FPs. Some others reporting it, no mention of them using Win 7 at all.

Are These FP's? - Malwarebytes Forum

Just an update.


The false positives have been fixed in the latest Malwarebytes update. if you update MB, you can scan again and it won't pick it up.

ad-ware

did you import anything from the previous installation? sometimes things look like shortcuts but really are either java or a disguised exe.

Good Luck

They're just Spywareblaster entries being picked up as false positives. No danger.

This is the EASIEST way ever of getting an infected system. If you must run these wretched type of programs (they are usually sneakware -- you get things like problems found but you need to "upgrade" to a PRO (i.e PAY) version to use the feature you want) run then stand alone first (i.e from an .EXE file having scanned it carefully first).
I wholeheartedly concur.
Almost every 'warning' of that kind is usually a Trojan in disguise.

Thanks for all the advice as it really annoyed me that i got infected for no good reason . I have learnt the hard way over the years and i kinda pride myself by not getting any nasties on my system. Ive installed various leaks from this forum and they have all been as "clean as a whistle" and i know that the sources are trusted by the more experienced users that use this forum.

Ive just read my original post again and if it came across that i was blaming the build or the original source (Sukonka) i apologise.

Thanks again

Sean.
