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!
I'm afraid I need to ask again. Seems my concern was overlooked. The problem can be seen on many computer help forums. Original message:
"AdwCleaner removes Hotspot Shield. However, many users have messed up their Internet connections in the process. If you're reading this, please see what you can do to correct the issue. Thanks"
I don't know why it's seeing Hotspot Shiled as adware. It's a legitimate application.
Thank you for fixing the issue, and for this very useful program.
This latest version has many false positives. In favorites, i have a folder name 'online' it is detecting that folder. In registry, it is detecting IDM helper addon for IE (I have Internet download manager installed). In firefox, it is detecting an addon xpi file 'SuperDrag', i have been using this addon for months it is not a adware. Please fix this problems if possible.
Thanks a lot for this superb program.
@tonypl6 : It was a "small" bug in the database. It has been fixed yesterday with the database update.

In ADWCleaner V4.104**** English version*** and previous versions, the "Firefox" and "Chrome" tabs display column headers in French, other tabs display in English. Please fix.
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.
vers 4.101 STILL INCOMPATIBLE WITH XP
..THE BUG continues...still NOT FIXED YET
