I downloaded Adwcleaner today from CNET
I got a warning it was out of date, and was directed to a link for the current version
I downloaded the new Adwcleaner and when I tried installing it,
"Avast Antivirus" gave me this warning:
The file was quarantined:
File Name: dwNRRc3h.exe.part
Virus Description: Win32:Malware-gen
La version v4.106 n'a pas corrigé le problème d'effacement de Google toolbar tout comme la précédente et la version 3.201.
Décochez toutes les corrections de registre se terminant par ....CD4F}
Pour Edelweiss, faites comme moi, sauvegardez toujours les anciennes version avant d'installer la nouvelle.
Pour la deuxième fois et cette fois avec la version v4.105 ma barre d'outil Google est supprimée.
Obligé de la rétablir avec
Adwcleaner is now picking up registry key entries (not folders or files) of Internet Download Manager. A legitimate downloading software that did not use to be picked up in previous versions of Adwcleaner. Please white-list Internet Download Manager.
For those complaining about XP compatibility, I'm a XP Pro user and I can confirm AdwCleaner is fully compatible with XP. Like everybody though, I have had trouble with version 4, but it has been fixed. The latest 4.103, however, shows a little progress bar for loading the database right before opening the program. It also takes a little too long for the scan to run. Other than that, it works.
By the way, why aren't we getting prompted to install the latest version anymore?
And, I really miss when the program would update without having to download a new .exe file.
I can't run the new adw cleaner version on my pc because I get this AutoIt Error message when opening the file: "Line 2057 (File "G:\adwcleaner_4.102.exe"): Error: Variable must be of type "Object". I use Vista premium 64 bits. Can somebody help? Thank you.
I have just installed and ran it but after I selected all folders, files and registry files to clean it restarted what I saw is Radsteroidsis stiil there in my all programme and showing unwanted add in chrome, please help, does any body have any solution for Radsteroids?
I had to make an account just to thank you for this amazing program.
I had something crazy going on on my computer that installed priceechopp and savemaass as extensions on chrome every time I opened it - making ads pop up everywhere...
I tried going through my installed programs list and deleting things (I found scary things with tricky names that looked normal in there too) but nothing helped
I read forums and forums about people who had the same problem as me and were installing all these programs with none of them helping
Finally someone said that this helped so I tried it
It was so fast, and so weird to see the notepad open with all of these scary files that were deleted - I would have never thought to look for them in those locations
Anyways thank you sooo much.
And for anyone who wants to get rid of pricechopp, this is the only thing I've heard of that actually works.
