AdSubtract Pro - Activate after re-installation

InterMute have recently withdrawn the AdSubtract Pro webpages. This caused the problem reported and SOLVED here:

But I had to re-install AdSubtract Pro after a complete Windows wipe. Now there is no Activation Webpage for AdSUbtract Pro and the "trial period" has expired. I have checked the registry keys against those in my laptop where AdSubtract Pro is still running OK (activated many months ago), but I cannot see which key has been changed by activation.

Any ideas?

    I should have said that TrendMicro have withdrawn the InterMute webpages for Adsubtract Pro.

    I did telephone TrendMicro about this problem a few days ago, but the HelpDesk had never even heard of AdSubtract Pro!! Well, I suppose it is some years since they last sold it, but it does appear still be in use around the world.

    Since my earlier posting, I have uninstalled and re-installed (no effect), and uninstalled, wiped all Intermute files and deleted all registry entries for Intermute and AdSubtract, and then re-installed - but to no effect - still locked at "Trial Expired".

    Thanks, Clif4949, for the suggestion.

    However, I do not have any peer-to-peer software on either of my computers and have never used such software or used a key generator. So I have no idea how to make use of your suggestion.

    I do have AdSubtract Pro running on my laptop and it was activated with my main e-mail address, exactly as my desktop previously was. So there must be a key somewhere on my laptop, if I knew where to look. But maybe that's what emule would do for me??

  • EdiburghFixr Oct 24, 2008

    Thanks - I saw that emule was a file-sharing program, though I have never used one.

    If the "keygen" modifies the registry, why cannot I make the same modification manually?

Have emule or similar?

this is a key generator. Linking to it is legal, downloading might not be. I'm not sure. Anyway here's the link:

    clarification: emule is a file sharing program

  • Clif4949 Oct 24, 2008

    the "keygen" doesn't spit out keys as the name suggests. It makes the necessary registry modifications.

Buffer overrun in adsubtract pro

From IE toolbar, click tools, internet options. Then click the connections tab. Click lan settings button. uncheck the radio box that says Use a proxy server.

IE will work again, but with no adsubtract. A possible reason the fix didn't immediately work for you is that the dns cache needed to be flushed. accomplish this by clicking start, run, cmd.
in the black box, type ipconfig /flushdns
then press enter.

AdSubtract Pro

adsubtract "phones home" everytime it is started. it looks to which then refers to (the purchaser of intermute). trendmicro recently changed their website to disable adsubtract (either wittingly or unwittingly)

Here is how to fix:
1) first find your hosts file. it is usually located in C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc
the file is "hosts" and it has no file extension.
2) open the hosts file with notepad.
3) add the following line to the bottom:

Adsubtract will work once again if you follow these instructions, but you will no longer be able to visit the website "" unless you change your hosts file back the way it was.

Error#: 0x80040e37 Spysubtract

We didn't have the IMDATUpd.exe in the directory, so we couldn't run it to update the application. The fix for this is to download the new version and run the installer. Make sure you enter the same email address that you used to register. This should solve your problem, it solved ours.
