Does not detect pricechopper which is a Google Extension that I never added and keeps re-installing after deleted. Would appreciate a fix to detect from Browser. Thank you.

Please, I need your help. After scanning my system with your product, I detected the following (from the report)

After the scan, Under Chrome found an Extension unknown.(see above)
Selected "Clean" - Program ran for a little then a message appeared:
Aut2Exe has stopped working.
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.
Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

The faulty chrome Extension was not removed. My system is now unstable and had several dumps (blue screen). Avast, ESET, Malwarebytes and other reported nothing, only AdwCleaner.
Again, my system is now unstable, AdwCleaner is detecting that Chrome Extension but does abort before removing it. Any idea of what the problem is.
Please, contact me at padi5star@gmail.com if you have a solution. I will be away from my computer for 10 days, but I can receive emails.
Thank you.

v3.301, getting SysWOW64\sqlite.dll errors when scanning browsers, scan never completes and no way to cancel the scan and clean what scan has already found.

Thank you for this excellent software which removed the annoying 'trovi' infection of my browsers. I found your site from an article in Computreactive Issue 247.

can you exclude Program Data\Kaspersky Lab\SafeBrowser from the list of unwanted?
Otherwise: beautiful work; thank you a lot!

I found AdwCleaner to be awesome, thank you very much! But I also found that even after running it, if I reinstalled Chrome, the speedial redirect would be reinstalled.

I found the speedial browser redirect also inserts a key into the Windows registry that causes Chrome to reinstall speedial whenever Chrome is reinstalled itself.

Details here:
https://developer.chrome.com/extensions/external_extensions

The key on my Win 7 / 64 machine is
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\Chrome\Extensions\bakijjialdiiboeaknfpmflphhmljfkd

I assume the Chrome items are delete. I run AdwCleaner again, and they seem to be gone. If I run again AwdCleaner a few hours later, the items are back. Where are they coming from? How can I clean them permanently? I do not have ask.com nor aol.com. Please, help.
Contact at pady5star@gmail.com - thanks

Estimados Amigos:
Los molesto porque tratando de instalar WhatsApp en la PC llegué desde Taringa a un Video de Youtube que explicaba el procedimiento y ofrecía los archivos correspondientes para la instalación del programa. Efectué la misma, la que en definitiva no funcionó por problemas con la tarjeta de video y desinstalé todo con Youruninstaller y específicamente con el paso profundo a fin de eliminar toda la basura. Luego corrí el TuneUp para limpiar el registro y también limpié el mismo desde el Ccleaner.
A pesar de todos estos resguardos comenzó a producirse el siguiente fenómeno cada vez que enciendo la PC: El Centro de Seguridad de Windows me avisa que se encuentra desactivado el Control de Cuentas de Usuario, se abre el navegador (tengo Firefox como predeterminado) y se direcciona a: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zo1bu8Ay8os en forma automática.
Como precaución tengo deshabilitada la conección automática de internet al encender el PC por lo que activo el Control de Cuentas, cierro el navegador y no hay problema pero resulta muy molesto, ya que esta metodología es permanente.
Antes de molestarlos que hice:
1. Corrí un análisis completo desde Avast. Detectando un par de virus (no vinculados aparentemente con este tema) que eliminé. Tiempo de procesamiento ocho horas.
2. Corrí el Malwarebytes (que está residente) también completo y salió limpio.
3. Corrí el Adwcleaner que también limpió un par de temas.
La PC es una notebook que corre bajo Vista. Todos los análisis los corrí en modo normal. Debería intentar en el modo seguro? S.O.S.
Desde ya muchas gracias.
