    great tool. i highly recommend using this in safe mode though in order to make sure everything it finds is successfully removed. however it will work fine running it on the desktop in "normal" boot up mode as well as it has never failed to remove anything on my end.

    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.
