Great product, I have just managed to clean my notebook of all the horrible malware.
Once again and this time in english my suggestion for the UI/language
While in English is a distinctly difference between "Cleaning" and "Uninstall", in the german translation the words "Löschen" (Delete) and "Deinstallieren" (Uninstall) are not so different and many people misunderstand this. After a scan they often choose "Deinstallieren" (and the similar Icon with the red bug reinforces the error) because they think, that this uninstalls the malware but in fact it deinstalls AdwCleaner.
Please change that.
TESTIMONIAL For AdwCleaner -- World's Best Free Cleaner for Treacherous Malware
I discovered AdwCleaner at the Malwarebytes forums. It is one of the primary tools used by the AV experts there.
I used AdwCleaner for several years whenever I believe my active PAID AV protection failed to detect a threat.
AdwCleaner saved my PC SEVERAL times from Virus Hell!
THANK YOU EVER SO MUCH FOR AdwCleaner, Mr. Xplode.
(WARNING for Novice Users: Unless you are very knowledgeable about the Windows Registry, think twice about using AdwCleaner to delete potentially infected registry keys. If AdwCleaner says you have infected registry keys, go to the Malwarebytes forum and ask for a second opinion from an expert before messing with your Windows Registry.)
Version 5.018 wird derzeit von Avast! Free als Malware erkannt und am Start gehindert. Die Meldung lautet Win32:Evo-gen [Susp]. Ich hab das mal als False Positive gemeldet.
@SPARTACUS Do not blame changelog AdwCleaner I have been using this program since the "Beta" version never had a problem and wish to thank the developer for this program this and Malwarebytes has saved me a lot of bs excespcially dloadin torrent files such as games and software you never know what viruses and malware are hiding in these files . And back to @SPARTACUS your "other perfectly good programs "you say you had with your chrome extensions you should of unchecked them before running clean setting and I believe there is a pop up could be wrong but if my mem serves me right a pop up comes up after scanning files before clean it says pls uncheck files and extensions you wish to keep I always have to do this cause I have a bunch of "PUP" but other first time users pls disregard this person comment I've been using for years and love this program
@Xplode..This is probably one of the best programs that I have used and has helped me so much when dealing with all those annoying ads on multiple browsers. This program has always worked for me whether I am using Windows.7 or 8; however, I ran into an issues when I was dealing with some malware called "DNS Unlocker." Your program actually removed all the software that was related with "DNS Unlocker," but it was unable to revert the changes that it did. "DNS Unlocker" actually modified my TCP/IPv4 settings and set it from automatic to a custom IP address. It took me a while to figure out why I still had coupon pop ups when I was visiting different sites. I believe since the creator of "DNS Unlcoker" made it possible to change your settings, he might be redirecting traffic through his server which allows him to capture all ID and passwords for any user. Is there a way you might be able to implement a setting on your program to set the TCP/IPv4 settings, which are located under your Network adapter settings, back to default, which would be automatic? This would be so awesome!
not work for antiadsblocker malware,
HOLA LES AVISO QUE LOS MALWARE DE "KOYOTESOFT" NO LOS ELIMINA SOLO PARA QUE LO AGREGUEN A SU BASE DE DATOS; TUVE QUE INSTALAR EL malwarebytes PARA PODER SACAR ESE MALDITO MALWARE QUE ME INFECTO TODOS LOS NAVEGADORES
Bonjour, tout d'abord ce logiciel me sauve régulièrement la vie donc j'en profite pour le dire !!
Je voulais aussi vous parler d'un site que j'avais vu quelque part ici (ou je sais plus ou) pour vous le conseiller de nouveau :
Je l'utilise sans arrêt quand je veux télécharger un logiciel, du coup je tombe à chaque fois sur le bon site, bye bye les *** de malwares !
Quand on fait un nettoyage avec AdwCleaner, on a un message qui nous dit de télécharger sur un site officiel, ça serais cool qu'on y ajoute ce site pour les gens aie connaissances de ce genre d'outils ! :D
Sinon merci encore à Xplode pour ce magnifique logiciel !
Amazing software, Xplode!
I would like to point out a few things I noticed with AdwCleaner:
SereneScreen is a screensaver software, not malware. Ad-Aware is an anti-adware program, but AdwCleaner keeps detecting it. Also, could you please give us a way to add certain detections to a permanent ignore /excluded list?
I know sometimes software ends up being detected as PUP, therefore an exclusion list should solve any issues with it!
I also want to point out that sometimes, AdwCleaner seems unable to start - sometimes due to an infection, sometimes seemingly without a real reason. It updates and then fails to start.
Keep up the awesome work you're doing!
