My adwcleaner failed to remove Vosteran Search which pops up 3 tabs for every one chrome tab. I haven't downloaded any private or personal files on this new computer.....only windows and McAfee updates have been entered. McAfee sent me to adwcleaner. Interesting but also not successful. Help.
Successfully removed "www.mystartsearch.com" from Windows 8.1 x64 Notebook.
After I have tried all to me known procedures including Malwarebyte, Nod32 and other antivirus programs this was the only program that succeeded to remove adaware/virus "www.mystartsearch.com" from my notebook.
DEAR MR cocochepeau ANDD MR XPLODE
REMOVE THE BIG LIE YOU HAVE RE-ENTERED:
YR TOOL IS STILL NOT COMPATIBLE WITH WINDOWS XP
YOU ARE MAKING A FOOL OF US
YOU HAVE BETRAYED ALL WINDOWS XP'S USERS
just like to say thank you your cleaner sorted my p.c out i had been plagued with ads and i couldn't get rid of them so after watching a clip on you tube i came straight to your website and downloaded your cleaner.I couldn't believe it worked and it was so simple to use now i'm ad free and everything is running fine now
Hi, I love your program, I use it a lot when fixing peoples PC's. I have a suggestion to make: would it be possible for you to consider code signing? This will help greatly when running the tool with Anti-Virus software running, because otherwise it flags it as a virus as it cannot verify the developer.
I downloaded the 4101 version and it does not run (Windows 7 user administrator). I run an earlier version (3311) and ok. The baidu virus was installed (there is software to manage and prevent unauthorized user facilities?) And I think he (even removed the 3311 version) is preventing version 4.101 to perform. Any tips?
Thanks, Er - Brazil

I am very saddened to see that this software is not compatible anymore with win xp sp3 pro.
Program's description above is misleading. Please remove XP from OS compatibility !
