30 days trial. It is not free.
works well for me in english and polishes off bugs handsomely
I LOVE AdwCleaner it helps me a lot! I love that it first kills almost all processes in order to do a good job after. In older versions it terminated the TeamViewer applications process too but I noticed that now it trusts TV so it leavs it alone. This is great! As I understand there is a "whitelist" for apps that won't be terminated before a clean? If so I would like to propose a new addition to this list: Ammyy. Ammyy is just like TV: a legit remote admin app. It has a free version also I think a lot of people use it. Sometimes I user it instead of TV but now I can't run Adw through it because then I "close my self out" of the computer: without "local" user interaction I won't be able to get back in the computer after I click ADW Clean. Their website: http://www.ammyy.com/en/
What do you think? Thanks for your answer in advance and KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! Thank you in the name of all the users of ADW!
it works great for me. i never have any issues. the best part is free software. thank for the amazing job. if it was worth $30 I would pay for it. is there a paypal account to do donations?
@anonsubmitter, yes you are right. But, most free software downloaded on the Web come bundled up with useless crapware anyway. The YTD downloader box, if you don't want the app, can easily be unchecked while installing your main program. Unckeck all boxes for programs unrelated to the main program. If you need YTD or Hotspot Shield, they have a website where you can get them. No need to be bundled up to anything. They are already very popular. They both can be uninstalled very easily from Programs & Features, so they should not be removed by AdwCleaner. Removing Hotspot Shield this way messes up the Internet connection.
For those who don't usually pay attention while installing software, a program like Unchecky could be very useful. That way, you won't be flooding the malware removal forums all over the Web.

Here are most of the entries I could find. I believe the Hotspot Shield drivers might be the culprit. One user had a driver inside Device Manager. Replacing that driver with one from another working computer seems to have corrected the connection issue.

This tool helped me get rid of the "Ads by Speed Dial" in Chrome. I was becoming desperate because no tool could get rid of it, Malwarebytes, Spybot, none. manual removal process described on various websites could not be replicated. I was really becoming desperate, I uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome, to no avail. I came across one article on a German website, and a poster recommended this tool. I gave it a try and it really worked!!! I am now free of "Ads by Speed Dial". THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THIS WONDERFUL TOOL!!!
