SUPERAntiSpyware said "Adware"

Recommended Posts

Well - Today I did scan my Wife's PC, and SUPERAntiSpyware Free said :

"Adware.My Web Search / Fun Web Products"

11 threats Detected in Registry Items ...

Well - My Wife do not have a "Search Bar" or "Smiley Central" installed ...

But she get now and then "funny pictures" send by some family members -

(So I guess it might be because of that - Though I am not 100 % sure)

I looked what SAS said about it :

1 out of 10

(So is should not be high risk, I suppose?!)

Still - Should we send the files to quarantine and remove them, just to be safe?

- Or what happen if no action is taken ?

Well - I ask because it is the first time SAS find anything - And we are not so familiar with what is best to do ...

Hi Seth!

Thanks for your answer !

"Anything SuperAntiSpyware finds in regards to MyWebSearch can be safely removed"

"Here is some more information on it:"

"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MyWay_Searchbar"

Well. I did put the files into Quarantine - And properly also delayed it by SAS.

... But making a scan later it did tell (again) 11 treats.

... So Did I do anything wrong? - Since they still are there ?

- We are not so familiar to SAS yet. And it is the first time my wife had those Threats -

How can they be removed from the hard disk, so they are gone forever ?

- Or shall they keep staying in the Quarantine ?

Best wishes and happy Saturday from Moxen

You're welcome.

You can delete them from quarantine and run the scan again.
