AdwareX Eliminator uses false positives. We have installed free version on clean system and performed full system scan that lasted over 30 minutes. The program has found 11 files and 12 registry entries. All files were related to fully legitimate applications and didn’t possess any threat. For instance, AdwareX Eliminator recommended removing default components of Sun Java runtime and Adobe Photoshop, whole mIRC chat program, etc. Moreover, it reported that its own file PopBlock.dll is malicious. Found registry entries actually were related to licensed and safe software, such as Creative sound card drivers and Windows Media Player. See first screenshot below.
Active Monitoring function works improperly. On our test system AdwareX Eliminator terminated running mIRC chat client and EditPad Lite text editor without asking for our permission first (see second screenshot). Free version refuses to remove any found objects. It asks to purchase full version that has the ability to eliminate spyware.
AdwareX Eliminator functions, settings, interface and other components exactly resemble those found in other antispyware products, such as AdDriller, Ad-Where 2005 or ADS Adware Remover. All these programs are knockoffs of legitimate Ad-Aware antispyware. They use the same spyware definitions database and produce similar scan results.
The official domain is adwarexeliminator.com.
We DO NOT recommend purchasing or using AdwareX Eliminator.
