    Hi dear @Krusty ,

    Sorry, I'm not going to do that.
    If company A acquires company B, it is the responsibility of company A to make sure that the old installers of company B are not flagged by the scanner(s) of company A (of course assuming that they were not malware). It is not my responsibility.
    I had my shares of FP's for long time; I'm tired of it ...

    Yes, but why would they care about a version that is years old and probably 3 people in the world using it?

    Wrong question, I'm sorry. They have to take care about it.

    Well it is 8 years old, I'm sure there is a cutoff somewhere whereas its not worth the time and money, for this and all software.

    Edit: I'll post on their forum as my curiosity is piqued now.

    But why bother? This false positive only happens in VirusTotal per staff comments, no impact in the consumer product and why use a very old version of Adwcleaner anyway?

    No, it does not only happens in VT! Whoever is saying that, is not right. I see it happening on my system.
    No, I don't use that very old version.
    I could say more but leave it to that for now.

    I have Malwarebytes in my PC and I dont have a false positive with Adwcleaner.

    Two members of Malwarebytes Staff said that ...

    Hello @Krusty

    Good catch! :thumb:

    It appears as if my available information, posted at 10:31 Pacific Time, went stale with the subsequent forum manager's update, about two (2) hours later, to the initial product manager's release announcement at 10:15 A.M.

    Thank you!
