Re: Advanced System Care


My questions are:  can I tell ADW not to remove advanced system care when I put it back?  And can anyone tell me, if ADW hasn't removed ASK and the other two, where they might be hiding, and how I can stop them coming back?

Re: Win XP support


There is a possibility to realize an XP support in current version.


I wrote back in August to fr33tux and sent him screens with explanations on how to add XP support to your project. So for now it seems like a MBAM PR action that you don't want to realize such support (though you can).  

It's not a question of technical difficulty, it's a choice to not support an OS no longe...

Re: Major difficulties with AdwCleaner v.

This is the only log available that says clean. This was done when he removed ALL check marks from all items found. Otherwise, when he removed check marks only from the registiry section the program did not go through with clean it just shut down. .


This time he hit clean and the program closed, the computer shut down but when it rebooted it had not cleaned anything.
