Just to keep A off my back.  IN MY OPINION,  I just ran my bi-weekly JRT and it does not like Ghostery ... and removed it from registry (see below).

IMO, From what I've seen it (Ghostery) provided a useful purpose.  IMO, I was able to opt-out of sending them back information that they use to sell advertisers a rival program.  IMO, Now THAT is marketing! lol  (IMO, Don't take MY word for it, look into it).  IMO, Once JRT removed the registry entries I HAD to finish the poorly performed 'removal' by JRT, with a complete removal with Revo Uninstaller Pro (which I recommend).  IMO, But before I reinstall Ghostery I'd like to see what others think of it.  JRT was the only scanning software that didn't like it.  Was I a dope for installing it (Ghostery), or for using JRT?

 

P.S.  IMO, Sorry for all the IMO's ... just making a point to a special, certain someone.

Hi,
Please download and use the latest version of JRT. Your version is almost 3 months old. Download it from here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/junkware-removal-tool/
Also, keep in mind that JRT is a one shot tool for removing junkwares from the machine.
Please donot duplicate your thread.

If the current version does the same with Ghostery, you can report it to the developer (thisisu) in this topic.

@ RVAH-12

 

If you are experienced enough, I would say to try ZHPCleaner instead of JRT (I now run it every few days), you can edit ZHP like AdwCleaner.

Based on the outcome and reports it puts out, it is as good as AdwCleaner or JRT .. I used the other tools, but still turned up 18 "errors" with the first run of  ZHPCleaner .

  • Download ZHP Cleaner  by Nicholas Coolman.and save it to your desktop
  • Temporarily Disable your Anti-virus to avoid clashes (like with JRT)
  • Right click the new icon and select Run as Administrator
  • Click on "I Agree" to continue, and Update the tool if asked
  • Close all open programs while using the tool and shutdown your antivirus to avoid any conflicts.
  • Click Scanner and let it run, be patient as this can take a while depending on your system and problems.
  • Click on Report and post the Scanner Report log [R] back here if you need advice.
    Once you are happy with the log then continue.
  • Now you run Repair section of the program.
  • This will usually only take a few seconds, as the information is in the Report log already.
  • You will have a Repair log [S] on your desktop

 

It is currently being discussed on Wilders Forum, and also on Major Geeks forum at the moment, or was recently..(sorry but I lost the links to their links)

 

NOTE : I have nothing to do with the tool, but I am just a very interested (now ) every day user.

While ZHPCleaner is another alternative, the issue with JRT needs to be reported if it indeed is targeting legitimate programs. Feedback from users is one way security tool developers like thisisu depend on to take corrective measures. This forum is for making such reports, not for assistance with malware/adware/PUP removal and posting logs. That type of individual help is provided in the Am I infected? What do I do? Forum.

Hi,
This issue may be due to outdated JRT and new version of ghostery.
Anyway, issue has been reported at SH library topic.

Much thanks to one-and-all for the advice and direction.  I will reload Ghostery and try again with an updated JRT.  This still nags me ... I thought that JRT was supposed to update automatically upon execution.  Weird, but thanks again.

Before using the tool, if JRT detects an active Internet connection, it is supposed to download the latest copy and relaunch itself automatically...that was introduced in v6.8.5.
