Media_Play_AIR+ – Removal Instructions

Just wanted to let you know about a new adware variant called Media_Play_AIR+ that I found tonight. 8 of the 50 anti-virus scanners at VirusTotal detects the Media_Play_AIR_1.1-bg.exe file, which you may see in the Windows Task Manager: media_play_air+-virustotal Some of the anti-virus program calls Media_Play_AIR+ Artemis, CrossRider and AppRider.

These are the variants I’ve found so far:

  • Media_Play_AIR+_1.1
  • Mediaa_Play_AIR_1.4

I found Media_Play_AIR+ bundled with a Zip/Unzip utility. The setup file was digitally signed by CloverMedia SL. How did you get Media_Play_AIR on your computer? The Media_Play_AIR+ files are digitally signed by individual developer SIMONA-VIORICA MARIN, which according to the certificate is located in Bucharest, Romania. Media_Play_AIR+_1.1-bg.exe certificate You can remove Media_Play_AIR+ with FreeFixer. Just select the Media_Play_AIR+ files as shown in the screenshots. Most of the files are located in c:\Program Files \Media_Play_AIR+_1.1 or c:\Program Files (x86)\Media_Play_AIR+_1.1 on 64-bit Windows. media_player_air+ in Firefox media_play_air+-bho media_play_air+ Media_Play_AIR+ is a variant of MPlayerPlus.

Freeven Pro – Removal Instructions

Are you getting ads while browsing the web labeled “Click to Continue > by Freeven pro 1.2“, like the one shown below?

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.
