AdWareALERT review

by Jake Doevan - - | Type: Corrupt Anti-Spyware

Free version of AdWareALERT was tested on clean uninfected computer. Full system scan took more than 50 minutes. The application found 7 malicious registry entries related to 3 parasites, including ISTbar browser hijacker, a peer-to-peer pest and BonziBuddy spyware. Further analysis showed that all detected entries actually are used by fully legitimate software that cannot damage the system or violate user privacy. Registry keys associated with ISTbar hijacker actually belong to REGTOOL5.DLL file, which is the safe essential component of Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0 development environment. Entries of unknown p2p pest actually are related to the harmless file sharing program eMule. These objects enable support of the ed2k protocol and special links used in certain web sites. A key detected as BonziBuddy spyware actually is associated with safe Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0 component RACREG32.DLL. This file is required by the Remote Automation Connection manager tool included in the same product. Screenshots provided below prove that AdWareALERT uses false positives.

Free version refuses to remove any malware it found and asks to register and purchase full commercial version.

The official site is adwarealert.com. It lacks privacy policy, detailed information about the product and its vendors.

We DO NOT recommend this program.
