    Anyone else getting this: http://support.emsisoft.com/topic/13749-applicationadsomea/

    EAM found today 5 objects in 5 registry keys. Application.AdSome (A) in
    HKLM/Software/Classes/WOW6432Node/Interface{...}
    adding "no risk"

    I show no other signs of AwesomeHP, and it is not in my program and features list (in COntrol Panel) nor extensions in my browser as most websites state it will be if it is a pup added to your computer.

    I suspect this is a Emsisoft false positive. Anyone confirm?

    Their PUP signatures are fairly new so expect some FP's.

    Anyways, i would suggest you guys post in the Emsisoft thread over at the Anti-Malware Sub Forum instead of this one or better yet, report it in the forums you will get a reply within a day or even faster depending on the time zone. :thumb: :thumb:
