Then you have a piece of software called Freeven Pro installed on your machine. Freeven Pro comes bundled with various software downloads. In my case I found it while testing a non-official download of the Google Chrome browser.

So, what is Freeven Pro? Obviously it’s adware since it shows advertisements. The anti-virus programs over at VirusTotal classify the Freeven pro 201.2-bho.dll file with names such as MultiBundle.RWin32.Application.Plush.BAdWare.PlusHD and AppRider.

Removing Freeven Pro is pretty easy. Simply check the Freven Pro files for removal in FreeFixer. The screenshots below shows which files to remove:

I’ve also captured a video that shows FreeFixer in action while deleting the Freeven Pro files. Hope you find it useful:

It seems as the Freeven developers are randomizing the product name. These are the variants I’ve found so far:

  • Frevens Pro 13
  • Fre_Ven_s Pro 23
  • Free_Ven_s_pro 25
  • Frieven_s_Prox_1.8
  • Fraven 1.1

What variants of Freeven have you found?

  1. I’ve been trying to scan my system for 4 days now. It keeps getting stuck at ‘Scanning Recently created or modified files.. This may take a while.’

    Any suggestions? As soon as it gets to this point it quits responding.
