While being in a rush, i was installing an app for powerpoint and i did not check for programs/pups comming with the installer. Indeed my laptop got infected 15 mins before a meeting(my first one outside england), i almost lost my promotion because of these malwares.

But hopefully someone told me about adwcleaner, which is a great tool+ it's completly free. Really guys thank you so much :D.
Not getting a response from you about "clean files" hang-up issue previously mentioned.
Note that unchecking "clean files" allow the subsequent cleanup processes to work - but it is unrealistic to do this every time the programme is used as the file "threats" simply remain in place.
ADWCleaner seems a neat utility, but it has to be fully functional to be retained.
Awesome work! I have a few things to mention though:
AdwCleaner keeps detecting SereneScreen's Marine Aquarium as a problem. This is a legit screensaver I paid for. Please configure it to stop detecting this as a problem. Also HCKU\Software\SlimWare Utilities are not adware / malware or any kind of problem either - it's a program called AVG Driver Updater - it can be downloaded from here: http://www.avg.com/us-en/avg-driver-updater
It's also strange that the AVG PC Tuneup Task Background Maintenance is detected under Scheduled Tasks. AVG PC Tuneup is a legitimate optimization suite that has the to clean registry , temporary files and broken shortcuts and defrag in the background. It's a legit program I installed myself and that can be downloaded from AVG.com.
Other than that, it's a great program. PLEASE:
1. Provide a "Send Feedback / Report incorrect detections" option in the program.
2. Provide the option to have an exclusion list and exclude incorrect detections from being re-detected in future scans, as unchecking every single detail in every single tab gets tiresome.
Keep up the great work!
AdwCleaner lists Mipony as a Potentially Unwanted Program, aka PUP; however it is not. When installing Mipony Download Manager, it clearly lists other software which will be installed if you do not uncheck the box, just as many other software programs do. Please remove Mipony from your list of PUPs. As is, I have to uncheck all the little boxes every time I run AdwCleaner. Thank you.
AdwCleaner 6.010 crash when delete some key adware. Plz check
Hmm… Not nice. AdwCleaner 6.000 found registry keys:
and sure cleaned them out.
After reboot I looked up what a heck those keys was about and found they are all FloXpress utility in SolidWorks 2014. I’m using this program last 2 years and never had any problems with program nor viruses. Now SolidWorks crashes when starting FloXpress… So sad…
Check everything before you cleaning with AdwCleaner 6.000 !
Amazing tool! It does the job against the Ads on the browsers.
Hi there, I check myself for updates and wonder how I can turn off email notifications of new AdwCleaner updates?
