@SPARTACUS Do not blame changelog AdwCleaner I have been using this program since the "Beta" version never had a problem and wish to thank the developer for this program this and Malwarebytes has saved me a lot of bs excespcially dloadin torrent files such as games and software you never know what viruses and malware are hiding in these files . And back to @SPARTACUS your "other perfectly good programs "you say you had with your chrome extensions you should of unchecked them before running clean setting and I believe there is a pop up could be wrong but if my mem serves me right a pop up comes up after scanning files before clean it says pls uncheck files and extensions you wish to keep I always have to do this cause I have a bunch of "PUP" but other first time users pls disregard this person comment I've been using for years and love this program
Xplode, thank you for a great tool. Recently I came across a malware auto-reinstaller that AdwCleaner v4.205 does not detect. I completely removed it using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware program.
Log files (and any other data ) available upon request.
Here are the details:
AdwCleaner removed all malware, but it would reinstall after about 5 minutes. I do not know which was the undetected culprit, but here is a list of everything Malwarebytes removed:
