    is ADWcleaner included in Malwarebytes.


    Hello.

    I recently noticed that Malwarebytes obtained ADWcleaner is it included now in Malwarebytes premium which I have running on my PC or do I still need to run it separately?

    Thanks

  2. W10 BSOD error " DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL(SYMEVENT64X86.SYS)

    Mr. Cornell;



    Thank you very much for the clear and exacting guidance. I regret that I could not respond sooner.



    I have downloaded and run the software as you recommended: Driver View, Malwarebytes and ADWCleaner. I ran Malwarebytes first and then ADWCleaner.
    The requested reports (including Driver View, Malwarebytes, and ADWCleaner) have been uploaded to OneDrive.

    I have run Spybot-S&D on a regular basis.



    On Saturday 12/12/2015 I ran the Norton Bootable Recovery Tool. No threats were found.

    No it isn’t included in MBAM so yes you need to run it seperately. *Smile

    I guess the most important reason that it is separate, is the fact that ADWCleaner will want to reboot to fully clean the bad guys out. Not real graceful if it were included in a real-time product like MBAM. Hence, separate. *Smile

    I thought AdwCleaner is separate because it's a standalone scanner that requires no installation, whereas MBAM requires a full install before you can use it. A heavily infested machine may block installing MBAM, but AdwCleaner can be downloaded to a USB using a clean machine then run from the USB to clean up the dirty one.

    Thanks gents.
    I thought as I have Malwarebytes Premium and MBAM has obtained ADWcleaner it would be part of the Premium product but now I know it's not.
    I like how Bree explains it as I can use it as my "silent assassin" via my usb to clean up my PC, not that I expect to have a HEAVILY INFECTED MACHINE never ever. Yeah right, never say never.

    You might like to add Bleeping Computer's RKill to your 'assassin's toolkit'...

    Thank you Bree.
    I do have Kaspersky running with all the above and all seem happy together is Rkill compatible too?

    Thanks

    Rkill searches for and stops known malware processes. It doesn't clean the system, the processes will start again if you reboot. Its purpose it to kill any processes that would try to block you from running your cleaners.
