On february the fifteenth, Ad-Aware required an update, and I was sent to the page adaware.com to download it. Now, I'm usually pretty internet-savvy, but for some reason my two neurons refused to connect and I did download the thing without checking. First question is, is this website legit ?...
I have tried everything, short of formatting, to get rid of it, after having some doubts on the subject. Of course, the software can't be uninstalled from Windows 8's control panel, nor can the process be killed through the task manager. I ran Malwarebytes in safe mode, C-Cleaner, AdwCleaner. I tried to use the registry key to uninstall it from the terminal. I tried deleting the registry keys. I tried, knowing that it wouldn't work, to restore the system at a previous point. And nothing has worked.
I can't find any information about this on the web and it seems to be a pretty recent thing. I doubt there is anything other than formatting that I can do at this point, but if someone has an idea, I'll take it.
