@cocochepeau Hi, As, after AdwCleaner requested to restart the computer after scan and clean, I was not able to log in anymore into the standard account from where I ran AdwCleaner, Therefore I didn't get the report, but I guess it should still be somewhere on my computer. I ran again AdwCleaner but with starting the scan, just to see if it sees the report, but the Report button is grayed out. I downloaded several versions of AdwCleaner, so I may not ran the same version. I don't know if that matters. On the other hand, if I press uninstall (without actually starting the uninstall) I see the files from the quarantine, but not the changes made to the registry. For the files you may take a look at: http://1drv.ms/16uCsum

@cocochepeau

Here are most of the entries I could find. I believe the Hotspot Shield drivers might be the culprit. One user had a driver inside Device Manager. Replacing that driver with one from another working computer seems to have corrected the connection issue.

Folder Deleted : C:\ProgramData\hotspot shield

Folder Deleted : C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\hotspot shield

Folder Deleted : C:\Program Files (x86)\hotspot shield

@Me1 We're working on this issue. Can you send us a report showing what has been deleted exactly?

@tgilles1 You can use AdwCleaner to clean any workstations you want, don't need to pay additional costs.

Couldn't remember password..so I made a new account.

@cocochepeau I emailed VIPRE about 2 days ago, and yes they confirmed: IT IS A FALSE POSITIVE. They said to make sure your software has the newest VIPRE definitions to the latest version (36814 or higher) and scan the file again...it found no threats to Adwcleaner.

So, it is safe to use!

@merida72 It's a false positive. AdwCleaner do not come with viruses.
@keepon You can uninstall AdwCleaner thanks to his uninstall button available from his interface (just launch AdwCleaner, you'll see it).
@tonypl6 Thank you!
