    I like it!
    Tool for removing tons of app-crap from many computers.
    If you infected by PUP - you must use AdwCleaner.
    But, don't forget - use it in a safe mode.

    I have a similar tale to relate from a couple weeks ago, Straspey, except I (unfortunately) did the cleaning. I threw everything at it, including AdwCleaner. It worked well.

    Within days, they got it reinfected. I'm not helping them again, except to tell them to run AdwCleaner.

    Last week, a family member called in a panic because he went to some snarky website and the next thing he knew his computer was awash in hijacked browsers, popups and all sorts of stuff.

    I told him to download this program, run it, and say "yes" to everything it wanted to clean.

    He did it -- and his system was returned to its previous happy state.

    Then guess what he did ?

    He went right back to the very same website and got re-infected AGAIN -- the exact same way!

    So he went back and ran AdwCleaner another time, and it saved him this time as well.


    You know what they say --

    "Fool me once, shame on you --

    Fool me twice, I'm an a s s h o l e."
