Please, I need your help. After scanning my system with your product, I detected the following (from the report)
# AdwCleaner v3.303 - Report created 08/08/2014 at 10:38:47
# Updated 06/08/2014 by Xplode
# Operating System : Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1 (64 bits)
# Username : Paulo - PAULO-PC

Found [Extension] : eofcbnmajmjmplflapaojjnihcjkigck
AdwCleaner[R99].txt - [715 octets] - [08/08/2014 10:38:47]
########## EOF - C:\AdwCleaner\AdwCleaner[R99].txt - [775 octets] ##########

After the scan, Under Chrome found an Extension unknown.(see above)
Selected "Clean" - Program ran for a little then a message appeared:
Aut2Exe has stopped working.
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.
Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

The faulty chrome Extension was not removed. My system is now unstable and had several dumps (blue screen). Avast, ESET, Malwarebytes and other reported nothing, only AdwCleaner.
Again, my system is now unstable, AdwCleaner is detecting that Chrome Extension but does abort before removing it. Any idea of what the problem is.
Please, contact me at if you have a solution. I will be away from my computer for 10 days, but I can receive emails.
Thank you.

V. 3.302, Il semble que cette mise à jour a pris en compte la raison du blocage objet de ma question d'il y a 2 jours à propos de:
"Line 2131 (File"H:\!download\adwcleaner_3.301.exe")"..
Alors bug ou pas, j'ignore mais comme le blocage semblait provenir de la présence de l'extension "Disable Anti-Adblock" de Firefox et désormais, présence ou pas de l'extension ADWcleaner fonctionne...

Merci et bonne journée à tous

Greetings AdWareCleaner Users & Developers: I have QUESTIONS please - How come my adwcleaner as an installed application under Vista isn't listed under my "All Programs"? ... How Come adwcleaner deletes installed apps I paid for like my Paretologic Registry Cleaner and its PCHA? Are Registry Cleaners as a group considered potential adware or malware? ... Are they even worth having? Why is there even a tab for Registry Cleaner on AdWareCleaner? ... How come there isn't a preview screen that I can edit before AdwCleaner deletes or quarantines its targeted folders or files? ... The old version of AdWareCleaner I had was installed on my desktop, how come the new one isn't? ... Is there any relationship between AdwareCleaner and MalWareBytes? How can I get back deleted or quarantined applications, files, and folders? Is there a help file I can read to spare us all from my tedious annoying questions? Instead of donating i would prefer a paid application I could buy. Thank you. (and can you post answers to with subject line "AdWareCleaner Queries")

Est t'il prévu de pouvoir lancer AdwCleaner en ligne de commande ? Par exemple, "adwcleaner.exe /scan -remove" lancerait un scan des fichiers malveillants, puis les supprimeraient, tout cela en arrière plan avec peut être un log directement dans la console (par ex: "Scanning folders... Done!" etc.)



Are there any plans you can launch AdwCleaner in command line? For example, "adwcleaner.exe / scan -remove" will launch a scan of malicious files and then would remove all, in the background. With maybe a log directly into the console (eg "Scanning folders ... Done!" etc.)

Thanks a lot.

Je rencontre quelques problème depuis une récente mise à jour, tout fonctionne bien lors du scan jusqu'à l'analyse de mes navigateurs où il m'ouvre une nouvelle page AutoItCOM Test avec l'erreur numéro: 800401F3
Lorsque je clic sur ok une nouvelle page s'affiche avec l'erreur 000000A9, je reclic sur ok et là une erreur windows s'affiche avec marqué:
Line 4401 (File"C:\Documments and Settings\JvJ\Mes documents\Téléchargements\adwcleaner_3.213.exe"):
Error: Error in expression

Puis-je avoir votre aide s'il vous plait ?

When the program quarantines a program, it marks every file in subfolders [filename].[ext].vir. A few hundred movie files were named in this way, would it be possible to change that behaviour so that only executables are marked in this way?
