I have windows 10 64-bit, and have gotten some infestation of SEARCHING.COM adware lately. I came across this tool which scanned all the malicious objects in my system including the registry keys and scheduled programs.
However when I click the "Clean" button, my PC crashes (with a blue screen saying CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED). I tried to check the Debug Log, but there are no entries for Clean operation, neither can I find any explicit Cleaning-related logs - I can see all the Scan logs in place.
Can someone please suggest a solution / workaround for this? I tried to remove the adware using some other tool and it worked fine, but the Adwcleaner still shows some malicious content and I can't seem to remove it.
Highly appreciate your kind help!!
