I had the same problem several weeks ago. It was fixed by updating Firefox.
I posted this before, but nothing has changed. I have not been able to use AdwCleaner since the update to 4.2. All three of my computers hang up on "cleaning web browsers" and must be shut down the hard way: by pushing the button. There is no other way to get the computer to shut down AdwCleaner. I used to be able to run it in a few minutes, and it got rid of everything my other scanners don't catch. Now I can't use it at all. Please fix!
This is the best software I have ever used! Thank you so much! It fixed everything! My browser was corrupted and my computer had an ad software virus and you fixed that too. So many thanks to all of you for your great program!
Como interpretar en el menu de inicio ACTIVATE UAC - Create registry backup- reset system setting para saber si los puedo utilizar o no. Gracias por su ayuda en DELFIX
New version of AdwCleaner has a lot of error in Czech language.
Its has bad formating, you can see it here: http://upnisito.cz/images/2015_03/722_patn_form_tov_n_.png
Like a Clean buton, now its incomprehensible, in Czech language its Čištění, no this "symbols".
And this problem is in next strings too ...
Please fix it!
PS: maybe change formating to UTF-8 :)
Unfortunately, the false positives remain. Doesn't look like it'll be fix any time soon. You should never blindly have AdwCleaner delete everything. Search entries you're not sure about online. You will avoid problems...
I wonder if there's more distinct Changelog about what got fixed, specially with false positives!
Previous version crippled me with Chrome where it tought that the ScriptBlock addon was a threat.
Things just got interesting: http://www.howtogeek.com/209654/scammers-are-using-a-fake-version-of-adwcleaner-to-trick-people/
"The ironic thing is that the real AdwCleaner doesn’t actually detect this fake version at this point."
^ You might want to fix that if it hasn't already been dealt with.
Hi, After running AdwCleaner and reboot I cannot log anymore in into my standard Windows 7 account, I get a black screen and then it makes log off. This is an account without password protection. I ran AdwCleaner from inside that standard account, by entering the admin password when asked. Luckily, I can still log in into my admin account. Is there anything to fix this issue? If not, can I undo what AdwCleanr did? Thanks!
