Short Bio

This is the detection for a family of adware that typically drops a DLL in a new sub-folder of %APPDATA%\roaming. This DLL will then be loaded in explorer.exe to display pop-ups and other forms of advertisements.


Malwarebytes can remove Adware.Hicosmea without further user interaction. Removal will often require a reboot, and Malwarebytes will prompt you to do so if necessary.
