Hello, Thank you very much for your software which rescued my computer. I had installed COMODO security shopping and I uninstalled it a few time after, but 1 process called csssrs64.exe remain in memory and took quite 20% of the CPU. This process could be deleted ( by processxp ) and no information could be delevered. More over, no "csssrv64" exist on the computer! I got too some mistake in the informations on w10 control panel ( comodo firewall still present after I had unstall it ( too ) and restart several times the computer ).
So I launched several softwares to try to solve this problem ( MBAM, mbar, adwcleaner, TDSSkiller ) and finally I see rkill in the list here. I launched it and endly my problem was solved.
It was exactly the sofware I need! So many thanks again!
By the way I advise you to never install COMODO softwares which take possession of some of system elements.
Do not install this program! It does not work! Disabled my start button. Restore does not work. It ran for 9 hours and deleted only search and restore in internet explorer, which I never use. The programs deletes found files automatically and restore function does not work. The website is in French and I am unable to translate into English. Built in restore point does not work. I had to use my own restore point. Lost everything after my restore point.
Piece of Garbage!!!!!
version 6.0 .
Adwcleaner finds a threat in file web data located in C:\Users\User Name\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default . The value is Search Provider and data is search.babylon.com.
I deleted it several times and it still can't be removed, even I deleted the whole Web data file.
Hi, I have an issue when i run "AdwCleaner 5.201". Whenever I run this particular version, my computer just hangs for few seconds, then starts functioning again. However, the AdwCleaner software doesn't start at all. I tried running the software several times. Same thing happens every time I try running the software. I downloaded twice again, after deleting the previous files, but to no avail. I also deleted all the temporary files, restarted the system, but was of no help.
I would like to know if the same thing or anything similar has happened to anyone and how was it resolved. Any help would really be appreciated. Thank you.
@SPARTACUS Sorry that it happened. What was these "other perfectly good programs" that AdwCleaner removed ? I also insists that we recommend to ask for help on our support forum while using such a tool. AdwCleaner let you choose what elements you want to remove. Finally, you can always easily restore deleted files by using the quarantine.
this programme doesn't seem to work. analysed 11,406 (22%) taking 90 minutes. is this natural for the time taken? I also tried to use the other functions while running this programme and none responded. to get out of the programme I had to use Task Manager to close the programme down and then use the Log Out function (using Ctrl+Alt and Delete). about 3 files were deleted. Am using Windows 7.
the question here is also, how long should it take for the programme to scan my computer? many thanks. George Benson.
First of all: I Love AdwCleaner. It only deletes the following keys that are used for Exact Globe (See: http://www.exact.nl/ ) HKCU\Software\eXact, HKLM\SOFTWARE\eXact, HKU\.DEFAULT\Software\eXact, HKCY64\Software\eXact. When these are deleted i cannot use the program. After an ''recheck of all files'' it works again.
Le répertoire protected créé par une de mes applications est systématiquement mis en quarantaine. Est-ce normal ?
Ci-après un extrait du log:

Par avance merci de votre aide.
I find many legitimate items flagged by AdwCleaner. Blindly clicking on Clean (now Cleaning???) is asking for trouble.
Hola, Hotspot Shield, YTD YouTube Downloader, AVG LinkScanner, etc. are not adware. They should not be deleted by AdwCleaner.
