During installation of version 7.7.3 AVG antivirus detected Adware


Recommended Posts

Dear all,

Has anyone got the same experience?

I downloaded version 7.7.3 earlier today directly from BitTorrent download site.

When going thru the installation steps (Clicking Next from the installation's Welcome page), my AVG Free Anti-Virus pops-up with "AVG Detection warning". It detected that the following:

Filename: ADKAppsOfferManager.dll

Location: c:\users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Temp\

Name: Adware Generic5.PAP

I immediately cancelled the installation process and ordered AVG to remove the offending file. I ran antivirus scan to the HDD and found nothing. When I started the installation again, it poped-up the same AVG msg.

Is this dangerous? I have been using AVG Antivirus Free for years and updated BitTorrent for numerous times, but never had this warning.

Thank you.
