Beware: Unlocker 1.8.6 & 1.8.7 bundled with adware/spyware/junkware Unlocker is a tool to help you to delete files which can't be deleted for some reasons. Unlocker used to be great until the developer decides to bundle an adware/spyware/junkware into the application in 1.8.6. Unlocker 1.8.6 & Unlocker 1.8.7 installs adware/spyware/junkware called eBayShortcut.exe. Although the installer gives you the option to deselect this ("ebay shortcuts") but unfortunately it gets installed anyway. The adware/junkware would not be uninstalled properly by the bult-in uninstaller when you uninstall unlocker. This is the threatexpert report: http://www.threatexpert.com/report.aspx?md5=ce49d389a9b30c1a0dbfadfbc1299136 (the program tries to connect to adon-demand.de for some reasons ) Steps to remove eBay Shortcut: 1. Create a txt file and save the following code: Code: start /wait unlocker1.8.7.exe /S ping -n 2 127.0.0.1 > nul DEL /F /Q "%ProgramFiles%\Unlocker\eBay_shortcuts_1016.exe" DEL /F /Q "%UserProfile%\Application Data\Desktopicon\eBayShortcuts.exe" DEL /F /Q "%UserProfile%\Desktop\eBay.lnk" DEL /F /Q "%UserProfile%\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\eBay.lnk" DEL /F /Q "%UserProfile%\Start Menu\eBay.lnk" REG DELETE HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run /v UnlockerAssistant /f pause 2. Change the extension from .txt to .cmd 3. Double click to run it. See more: Beware Unlocker 1.8.7 I'm looking for alternatives to replace this junk unlocker. A product called LockHunter seems good but I haven't tested yet. Tell me if you know there is a good alternative.
