I updated Adaware to the newest version and it detected my homeschooling program as a virus and deleated it! I was using KA Lite as a server on my windows 7 for local computers to connect to. How can I get my program back?

Hi Homeschooled,

 

You can remove the file from quarantine by:

  • clicking Scan Computer on the icon list on the left side of the GUI
  • scrolling down to Quarantined Files
  • clicking View
  • selecting the file you want to restore and hit Restore

You can add the file to the exclusion list by going into Manage Exclusions, just above Quarantined Files.

 

When you've restored the file, can you upload it here so I can check it out?

 

Thanks,

 

Andy

Thank you! I am starting to become famiar with this new version of Adaware. I found the files and restored them, but took screen shots of the results before restoring.

I am unable to add the file or the screenshots from my phone, but will be online with my computer later today and can try then.

Figured out how to change the settings on my phone :)

When I try to attach the
ka lite.exe I get a message saying I am not allowed to attach that type of file.

Please compress the file with Winzip/Winrar/7zip or similar before uploading.

Hi Homeschooled,

 

The detection of the file is a false positive and has been removed from detection.

 

Regards,
