Thank you for this new release.

Unfortunately, some of the false positives I've listed a while back are still being flagged:

Simple Adblock (which is now Adblock Plus for IE)

ProgSense

Hola

Legitimate proxy server settings

Why have you removed the option to DisableAskProtection, DisableBrowsersProtection, DisableProxyProtection....?

@Yotony: For example, Norton thinks that Steam is a virus: http://forum.blockland.us/index.php?topic=262855.0
I'd recommend switching to an antivirus that isn't complete shit (https://www.consumeraffairs.com/computers/norton.html), like avast!: https://www.avast.com/

Merci beaucoup, ce truc est sur et efficace, je l'utilise quand je m'apercoit que j'ai des pubs qui ne devraient pas exister (j'utilise adblock) et il les suprime a tout les coups! certains logiciels sur lesquels j'avait quelque doutes ont été suprimés aussi^^ c'est un bon outil

False positives (it's a legitimate VPN extension):
C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\Hola
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Google\Chrome\Extensions\ncffjdbbodifgldkcbhmiiljfcbgjag

If I remember correctly there's also a false positive for the Hola Unblocker Firefox add-on. However, the Firefox add-on stopped working for me - possibly due to AdwCleaner cleaning away files needed for it to work - and re-installing it doesn't help, so I can't submit a report for that add-on. The add-on can be installed from here if anyone wants to have a look at it: http://hola.org/

The following entries are false positives:

C:\Documents and Settings\User\Application Data\ProgSense (included with some software to look for updates - nothing malicious or deceiving)


C:\Documents and Settings\User\Application Data\Simple Adblock (adblocker now known as Adblock Plus knowingly installed by user for Internet Explorer)

C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Application Data\Hola (knowingly installed by user)

HKCU\Software\ProgSense (included with some software to look for updates - nothing malicious or deceiving)

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{459DD0F7-0D55-D3DC-67BC-E6BE37E9D762} (belongs to ZoomBrowser EX, a Canon camera utility)

The following are proxy settings knowingly added by user:

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings [ProxyEnable] - 1

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings [ProxyOverride] - *.local

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings [ProxyServer] - socks=localhost:1234


Thanks in advance for correcting the issue.

Good Morning!
I'm trying to uninstall your program. I'm assuming it's a single use program, that is download it when you need it, then, delete it. I'm afraid I don't understand your above term "using the 'mode uninstall.'

I see Adware in my downloads file, but there's no uninstaller. It's not listed in "Programs & Features," so I can't uninstall from there.

I'm trying to get numerous SearchScopes entries OUT of my registry. While I successfully downloaded & ran Adware from Bleeping Computer this morning, when I tried to download from your site, Sonar blocked it. I don't know what Sonar is, so I figure I'd better uninstall, clean out Adware, and do some reading before I try again.

Is the "mode uninstall" a new term/function? Can someone help me understand,please? Appreciativley...

Bonjour,

Le faux positif concernant Adblock était dû à une détection annexe qui a été supprimée dans la dernière version de la base de données.

Cordialement,
Xplode.

Salut à vous,
J'ai actuellement constaté une chose étrange sur AdwCleaner 4.106:
il me détecte le dossier qui contient Adblock comme malveillant:
C:\Users\nom\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions\gighmmpiobklfepjocnamgkkbiglidom
Suis-je le seul ?

There are more:
Chrome: Adblock Plus and Adblock, Click&Clean, Auto HD For YouTube™ and maybe others.

Thank you again!
