Hello there,
While being in a rush, i was installing an app for powerpoint and i did not check for programs/pups comming with the installer. Indeed my laptop got infected 15 mins before a meeting(my first one outside england), i almost lost my promotion because of these malwares. But hopefully someone told me about adwcleaner, which is a great tool+ it's completly free. Really guys thank you so much :D.

Awesome work! I have a few things to mention though:
AdwCleaner keeps detecting SereneScreen's Marine Aquarium as a problem. This is a legit screensaver I paid for. Please configure it to stop detecting this as a problem. Also HCKU\Software\SlimWare Utilities are not adware / malware or any kind of problem either - it's a program called AVG Driver Updater - it can be downloaded from here: http://www.avg.com/us-en/avg-driver-updater

It's also strange that the AVG PC Tuneup Task Background Maintenance is detected under Scheduled Tasks. AVG PC Tuneup is a legitimate optimization suite that has the to clean registry , temporary files and broken shortcuts and defrag in the background. It's a legit program I installed myself and that can be downloaded from AVG.com.
Other than that, it's a great program. PLEASE:
1. Provide a "Send Feedback / Report incorrect detections" option in the program.
2. Provide the option to have an exclusion list and exclude incorrect detections from being re-detected in future scans, as unchecking every single detail in every single tab gets tiresome.

Keep up the great work!

I have a couple of false positives to report that keep getting flagged, but shouldn't be.

1. Under Scheduled Tasks, RunAsStdUser Task is C:\Program Files\GPSoftware\Directory Opus\dopus.exe
This is a legit Directory Opus entry.

2. Under Shortcuts, C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\TeraByte Unlimited\TeraByte OSD Tool Suite Pro\Ready To Run Scripts\INISTART - Reset Windows Startup.lnk
This is a legit Terabyte Image for Windows shortcut.

I noticed AdwCleaner is detecting 'Adobe Flash Player Updater' under Scheduled Tasks. This is a legitimate Adobe Flash Updater task and should be fixed.

Bonsoir,
Cette version 4.201 est en anglais.
J'ai viré le moteur de recherche Ixquick et Yahoo
Pour le reste, mêmes résultats et je ne sais pas si je peux supprimer
J'aimerais avoir votre avis et savoir éventuellement d'où pourrait venir ces services.

Forgive me if this has already been asked but is there any command line switches to enable an automated silent cleanup? If not would there be a possibility of adding this feature. We look after many pcs on a managed service and we're trying to find a program that can clean up toolbars and other unwanted software automatically on a schedule.

Please, I need your help. After scanning my system with your product, I detected the following (from the report)

########## 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 padi5star@gmail.com if you have a solution. I will be away from my computer for 10 days, but I can receive emails.
Thank you.
