Can I just say thanks for AdwCleaner. I had 140 ad-programs clogging my machine. Your software got rid of them fast! Also, a word to the XP users out there. It is a little strange to be using an operating system no longer supported by MS with utilities and security updates - and then complain that an Adware removal program won't work on it! Your computer is a disaster waiting to happen! Please upgrade to Win 7 at least - for your own sake.
Hi Xplode, just wanted to update you with this discussion @ http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/558151/adwcleaner-deleted-system-required-registry-entries/
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.
Cleaning malware with AdwCleaner in an Windows 7 of a friend AdwCleaner didn't delete some tasks named "Rocket Updater" and "APSnotifier...". Everything else was deleted. What to do?
Thank you very much for an answer.
When I used this before via remote sessions on logmein, I would run it and everything went fine. Lately however I noticed that after the cleanup at the end it cuts me off from the internet connection with the remote computer. The remote user now has to press "ok" twice and then their pc reboots then I'm connected again, and it didn't do that before. Can you update this to go back to how it was please?
@Ipuri - I'm using AdwCleaner v3.216 and I haven't encounter disconnecting issue with LMI(logmein rescue). But when I use the updated one which is AdwCleaner v4.101, when I click on "clean" the LMI will lose it's connection.
@admin please give me feedback on this. thank you!

Since adwcleaner has been updated to 4.0+, I've been having trouble with getting disconnect via Log Me in Rescue in SMWN.
It scans and completes ok, but disconnects when the dialog box regarding "If you have been brought to use adwcleaner.....".
It doesn't happen on every PC, but more of them then not (75%) and it's really causing hiccups in my support. Can this be looked into.
Furthermore, are there any command line switches available for adwcleaner. I'd like to be able to launch it, have it scan, and reboot with no user interaction whatsover.
Let me know on either issue. Thanks!
