    Here's some detections I got from Ad-Aware after cleaning up with MRU Blaster first.

    Could these be added in the next release?

    I was always under the impression that AdAware found some MRUs that MRUBlaster didn't find (and vice versa). There are a lot of MRUs out there after all!

    It is a similar thing with CCleaner, if you clean the Registry for certain 'issues' and then use RegSeeker, the latter will find umpteen more issues of the same class that CCleaner missed.

    I always find that if I clean MRUs with Blaster first, AdAware will find yet more; but personally I do not consider these extra ones to be at all important - thus I have now configured AdAware not to even look for or report on MRUs. So I only bother to clean out the ones Blaster finds.

    I just figured Id report them so MRU Blaster could detect them at the next update ;)

    Hi, r00trd

    Are they when you scan with Ad-aware for ADS with the negligible risk retries checked, if so they are just that negligible entries and Lavasoft support advise to scan with them unchecked.

    If you run SpyBot SD after you remove those entries, SB will find them, then have SB remove them, you will find Ad-aware will fine them again, you will be going round in round in a never ending circle. [like a dog chasing it tail]

    Take Care
