I'm very frustrated right now, firstly, this program made me a glitch in my whole laptop which it automatically organizes all the icons, and folders of my computer and I cannot organize it manual no matter if I > right click in desktop and uncheck autoarrange, it stills doesn't let me organize my computer manually.
This started to happened in the version 5.008, and I needed to reinstall my laptop without knowing that this error was caused by AdwCleaner, after I reinstalled my laptop, I downloaded AdwCleaner and now I'm stuck again with this error, help please, this program modifies my computer as if it were a hacker/pishing software, that is the reality.
I would like to personally thank you guys, I have had a nasty piece of adware on my pc for a long time, and I had finally snapped! I couldn't find any help online, then someone discreetly commented adwcleaner! I could not believe this didn't come up anywhere else and it instantly solved my problem! Thanks alot.
BTW - The adware was called DNS.Keeper. Brutal stuff!
@Xplode..This is probably one of the best programs that I have used and has helped me so much when dealing with all those annoying ads on multiple browsers. This program has always worked for me whether I am using Windows.7 or 8; however, I ran into an issues when I was dealing with some malware called "DNS Unlocker." Your program actually removed all the software that was related with "DNS Unlocker," but it was unable to revert the changes that it did. "DNS Unlocker" actually modified my TCP/IPv4 settings and set it from automatic to a custom IP address. It took me a while to figure out why I still had coupon pop ups when I was visiting different sites. I believe since the creator of "DNS Unlcoker" made it possible to change your settings, he might be redirecting traffic through his server which allows him to capture all ID and passwords for any user. Is there a way you might be able to implement a setting on your program to set the TCP/IPv4 settings, which are located under your Network adapter settings, back to default, which would be automatic? This would be so awesome!
AdwCleaner war die einzige Schutz- bzw. Säuberungssoftware, die das Störprogramm "mystartsearch" restlos beseitigte! Tausend Dank! Ich kann es kaum glauben! Ganz toll! Ich werde Sie weiterempfehlen. Und eine Spende leisten, was hoffentlich auch zahlreiche andere Anwender tun werden. Organisationen bzw. Institutionen wie Sie verdienen, vorbehaltlos unterstützt zu werden.
I need help with this.
Can you please add cleaning for the browser hijacker called "Alarabeyes" and "Alnaddy". I am pretty sure it could help thousands of people. Would appreciate the developers greatly. Also if possible please add security detection for Opera.
Forgive me if this has already been asked but is there any command line switches to enable an automated silent cleanup? If not would there be a possibility of adding this feature. We look after many pcs on a managed service and we're trying to find a program that can clean up toolbars and other unwanted software automatically on a schedule.
AdwCleaner 4.109 détecte bien ColorMedia et propose la suppression des services cmwr et cmwfp ainsi que la suppression des fichiers C:\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\cmwr.sys et C:\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\cmwf.sys mais au reboot du PC les services et les fichiers annoncés comme supprimés par AdwCleaner sont toujours là!
Voici un extrait du fichier des logs:
***** [ Services ] *****
[#] Service Supprimé : ColorMedia
Service Supprimé : cmwf
[#] Service Supprimé : cmwr
[#] Service Supprimé : CMWFP
***** [ Fichiers / Dossiers ] *****
Fichier Supprimé : C:\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\cmwr.sys
Fichier Supprimé : C:\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\cmwf.sys
I had a computer that was infected with a browser hijacking called gamersinfo.org but Adwcleaner didn't pick it up. Maybe you haven't added it to the database so would really appriciate if you did.
Thank you for creating and continuing to update AdwCleaner. My 68 year old neighbor called me asking for help removing what turned out to be "Ads by CheckMeUp". Your software worked perfectly, and even found and resolved another issue as well. I am going to donate to help you continue your efforts. It's not a lot, but i hope everyone you help is able to donate something...thanks again!
I never update my adwcleaner version automatically kicked from the app. I delete the app and I download the new version ONLY here. CNET or other site put their own spices with it that kicked all kind of security messages.
