Remove SpadeCast Adware

Hello readers. Another day, another blog post. Did you just see something called SpadeCast on your machine? I just spotted SpadeCast while reviewing some of the latest submissions to FreeFixer’s database.

I first thought that this was a BrowseFox variant, based on how it named its filename. But the VirusTotal and the anti-virus programs there detect it as “Adware.SpadeCast“. The detection rate is 9/53. Some of the detection names for SpadeCast are Adware.SpadeCast.A and Trojan.Win32.Generic!BT. I guess it could still be a BrowseFox variant.

So, how about the removal? If you’d like to remove SpadeCast you can do so with the FreeFixer removal tool. Just select the files digitally signed by “SpadeCast”, click the Fix, reboot, and the problem should be solved.

Hope that helped you with the removal.

Did you also find SpadeCast on your computer? Any idea how it installed? Please share by posting a comment. I’d like to install and test this on my lab machine.

Hope you found this useful. Thanks for reading.
