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!

Xplode, thank you for a great tool. Recently I came across a malware auto-reinstaller that AdwCleaner v4.205 does not detect. I completely removed it using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware program.
Log files (and any other data ) available upon request.
Here are the details:
AdwCleaner removed all malware, but it would reinstall after about 5 minutes. I do not know which was the undetected culprit, but here is a list of everything Malwarebytes removed:
PUP.Optional.MultiPlug.Gen, PUP.Optional.ModGoog, PUP.Optional.GigaClicks.A, PUP.Optional.SearchProtect, PUP.Optional.EduApp.A, PUP.Optional.GigaClicks.C, PUP.Optional.Infonaut.A, PUP.Optional.SuperClick.A, PUP.Optional.CrossRider.C, PUP.Optional.Coupoon.A, PUP.Optional.CinemaPlus.A, PUP.Optional.Shopperz.A,PUP.Optional.MBot.A,PUP.Optional.GamesDesktop.A,PUP.Optional.MultiPlug.A,PUP.Optional.CrossBrowse.C,PUP.Optional.BundleInstaller.A,PUP.Optional.SearchProtect.A,PUP.Optional.GlobalUpdate.A,PUP.Optional.Trovi.A,PUP.Optional.Appmgr.A,PUP.Optional.JellySplit.Gen.A,PUP.Optional.Tuto4PC.A,PUP.Optional.SmartWeb.A,PUP.Optional.CrossBrowse, PUP.Optional.CrossRider.A,PUP.Optional.Imali.SID.A,PUP.Optional.Bundle,PUP.Optional.CheckOffer, PUP.Optional.BrowseFox, PUP.Optional.OfferInstaller.C,PUP.Optional.PCOptimizerPro,PUP.Optional.WebBar.A,PUP.Optional.Tuto4PC.A,

J'ai eu exactement le même problème MXCmike. Du coup j'ai utilisé Roguekiller. Une fois que Roguekiller (Adlice Software) ai eu débusqué un Malware bien caché, adwcleaner s'est remis à fonctionner normalement chez moi.

Bonjour,
malheureusement comme beaucoup d'utilisateur de AdwCleaner, après suppression et nettoyage, il y a certaine clefs de registre et autre qui se réinstallent après redémarrage, même après avoir suivis quelques tutos glanés par-ci par-là et check-up via anti-virus et autre anti-malware, ou en désinstallant internet explorer ça persiste....

Est ce que c'est normal ? faux positif ? pourriez vous me donner la démarche à suivre s'il y en a une pour virer ça, ça serait cool :) et si vous avez des questions sur le système ou autre n’hésitez pas.
merci d'avance pour tous vos efforts et bon courage à vous et à toute l'équipe.

@anonsubmitter, yes you are right. But, most free software downloaded on the Web come bundled up with useless crapware anyway. The YTD downloader box, if you don't want the app, can easily be unchecked while installing your main program. Unckeck all boxes for programs unrelated to the main program. If you need YTD or Hotspot Shield, they have a website where you can get them. No need to be bundled up to anything. They are already very popular. They both can be uninstalled very easily from Programs & Features, so they should not be removed by AdwCleaner. Removing Hotspot Shield this way messes up the Internet connection.

For those who don't usually pay attention while installing software, a program like Unchecky could be very useful. That way, you won't be flooding the malware removal forums all over the Web.

@GLE

Bonjour,

Norton & Malwarebytes Anti-Malware n'ont eu aucunes réactions chez moi. Rien de particulier côté sécurité à signaler.

Bon point et MERCI: cette nouvelle version 4.107 ne supprime plus l'ancienne lors du téléchargement.

Dans l'immédiat rien constater de plus

Excellente journée

Edelweiss
