    Hi again ritaann. ;)

    I merged your new post over here as it is a follow up to this topic.

    Just a couple of questions.

    What is the name of this trial scanner that picks up the virus?

    Sounds a little iffy that this app. is the only one that found the virus and then wants u to pay for it for cleaning.

    It also would be helpful to know what file it was found in, and it's properties.

    Thanks.

    Great link Mr. Hrmm. :)

    To put it lightly, NoAdware is garbage.

    False positives just to get u to buy.

    I wouldn't give it any credit ritaann.
