I paid for MalwareByte.. very pleased with free program for past several months. I found I was unable to delete Scorpian double additions to my C drive. Paid Malware took one away. If I understand, ScorpianSaver fills my PC with commercials and banners. I feel I own my PC space. I resent audible commercials and often turn sound way down. Most banners I have learned to ignore. In my 77 years I have only responded to one advert for dental bridge paste. Paying for cable to watch greater doses of commercials makes me very angry..soon the shows, most of which are very poor this Summer, with be commercial length and the actual commercials will take up showtime. All wasted on me and perhaps you. Our government used to watch out for viewer's rights to protect actual show length viewing time but in last few years another time batch has been given to advertising.. so the fix is in, hardly news in America. Our Capitalists at work. Most cable shows are terrible and I hope Cable Breakers that allow me to choose the cannels I want and pay for will soon arrive..probably from China or India. There are at most 15 channels we like to watch. Rant now over. If Scorpian's job is to feed me banners on my PC I want to delete it. Inability to do so violates my privacy..quaint thought that.

    I have instructions that say click F8 while restarting PC to get black panel and click "Safe Mode with Networking"..it did not show up. I have Win 8.1 64. That is all I know about computers. I use it for fun, history, flight sims, and naked women.

    I saw ADPEAK.com on the bottom of the ScorpianSaver screen and clicked "CONTACT" and left message to help me delete Scorpian. I said you people ignore commercials just as much as all viewers when off duty. It is their job to make the commercials, many of which are better than the shows, and my job to go eat, pee, walk my dog while they are on. I saw recently the government now allows a 20% sound increase for commercials, another fix is in as previously not allowed to do that. There may be soft ware that auto mutes adverts but then my finger is very good at that and will be probably the last part of me still moving after I pass away.

    If you have information and advice for me please share it.

I have images on c drive pictures. I have put them in Dropbox but unable to find a way to get them loaded to this reply window as you did above.. Email makes it easy to add photos as you know. This reply top line will not allow me to C drive. I have tried each icon but many mean nothing to me. Please advise me....

This is because this topic has been moved to the Am I Infected forum where you can't use this feature.  I hadn't noticed it had been moved at the time.

 

What is the content of the pictures of the C: drive?

You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[Sn].txt

 

Copy it and paste it in your topic as per the instructions I posted.

Hi John, I don't think the AdwCleaner log is that important.  What I really need to see is the Malwarebytes log.  This should let us know a little bit more of what we are dealing with.

 

If you post the browser you are using I will post specific instructions for copying the log and posting it in your topic.

 

Dan
