Default Adware Installed with Unlocker 1.8.7


Before recommending or installing Unlocker 1.87, it would probably be a good idea to do further research.

Beware Unlocker 1.8.7

ThreatExpert Report

My firewall prevented the unreported (secret or hidden?) installation of ebayshortcuts, an executable file. It has been reported that the program tries to connect to AD ON Media - Online-Werbeagentur and download additional files.

Even using Revo Uninstaller (a freeware utility that does a good job of removing entries from the registry and deleting files and folders sometimes left behind), the program is installed in such a way that some of the files could not be deleted. In my case I got an "Access Denied" error message. It took booting into Safe Mode and using DOS commands to delete the files and directory.

Install at your own risk! (Thank you, Online Armor!!!)
