yeah but what is adware u are talking about?
Is it adware that shows up in the jd2 while it is running
or bundle with the software when u installing?

and how it looks different?

Are u talking about the banners within jd2 that advertises buying upload accounts?
so if i downloader adware free version I won't get any such banners at all

Adware=Bundles the installer will install(eg toolbars, search providers) see
https://support.jdownloader.org/Know...g-installation

The banners/ads within JDownloader is no adware. You can disable those in advanced settings if you like

so if i download Adware version, you will still make some money even if I don't install any of those adware?
and how much would u make?


How do u disable the ads in advance settings?

If you don't install any bundle, then we will not make anything out of it.
In advanced settings, search for banner.

Default Bing's Installation

Hello everybody,

I'd like to report this "problem" because it is one, when Installing JDL2, I unchecked the stuff for bing, and disagreed to the thing that comes next (I don't remember what it was), yet after the installation, my search engine was changed to bing, and also some of my settings.

We are sorry for the inconvenience. It looks like you've overseen a checkbox or clicked continue accidentally without declining the installation of the optional adware. You should be able to normally uninstall it by normal OS uninstall practices. If you need help with this, please let us know and we will be happy to assist you with help of a Teamviewer session.
You can also find an adware free installer here http://jdownloader.org/jdownloader2
You can read more about it here

@Marialie
the optional adware is delivered by the installer not the files installed to its path.
either removed Avira as its poor solution for security software, or add exemption.

Default Antivirus critical Ransomeware warning during JDownloader installation

I downloaded the standard Windows install of JDownloader (directly from this site) containing the Bing browser, etc. (I turned all those 'extras' off.) Anyway, during installation of JDownloader, my antivirus displayed the two ransomware warnings listed below.

The second warning seems to be just a Windows JDownloader installation shortcut being removed. (I have to wonder why it needs to be added though, only to be removed again.) However, the first warning *seems* to indicate the JDownloader installation is attempting to delete ALL files from my Windows desktop!

-----

Ransomeware Protection blocked changes

Module: Ransomeware Protection

Bitdefender blocked a potentially unsafe application that attempted to change or delete your files protected by our Ransomeware Protection feature.

Targeted file: desktop
Targeted folder: c:\users\owner
Blocked application: c:\users\onwer\appdata\local\temp\in0db19a7d\1b8ab4ba_stp.exe

If you recognise and trust this application, you can allow it access to your protected folders by adding it to the trusted application list.

-----

Ransomeware Protection blocked changes

Module: Ransomeware Protection

Bitdefender blocked a potentially unsafe application that attempted to change or delete your files protected by our Ransomeware Protection feature.

Targeted file: continue jdownloader installation.lnk
Targeted folder: c:\users\owner\desktop
Blocked application: c:\users\onwer\appdata\local\temp\13134280242813109805.exe

If you recognise and trust this application, you can allow it access to your protected folders by adding it to the trusted application list.

----

Also, while I was browsing this forum for anyone posting a similar experience, I noticed there is a clean version of the JDownloader installter available - without Bing, etc. I hadn't even opened JDownloader yet. So I uninstalled the first installation, and installed the clean version instead. During that second install, NO ransomware warnings were triggered.

Any comments/explanations?

@RealFamilyMan: The installer with optional adware might trigger warnings/false-positives because it tries to contact server for the bundles which then get blocked/cause warning. You can easily decline/skip those bundles during installation or use the adware free installer from http://jdownloader.org/jdownloader2

What's going on? What is this PUP/Multitoolbar? Is it something you include in the binary?

Default installer query?

...and links to malware downloads as the "jdownloader installer". That's already bad enough, but it doesn't stop there. It took me one hour to find a non-malicious link to download the original JDownloader. What happened???

Default Like money in jd2 team ?

If you want money, try another way, because adware and mining it's not very good.

Default PUA:Win32/InstallCore malware in JD2 installer

Windows Defender attacked JD2's web installer today claiming it contains malware with a severe rating. I am attaching a screenshot.

**External links are only visible to Support Staff**Here is a link to Microsoft's knowledge base about this malware in which you can see JD2 is listed in the Technical Information section.

At the moment it is quarantined. Should I remove it or restore it?

InstallCore is our bundling partner. We are aware of the issue and will take care of it.
It's just a warning and no malware but bundleware. The installer is the same since long time.
You can skip/decline installation of adware during installation.

Default Jdownloader is horrible malware

Why did JD2 changed my firefox search engine to the stupid Bing.com without me giving any permission? That's horrible. What other changes did it do to my system? I will report you for malware!!!!
