Working Perfectly now, I use Malwarebytes premium latest Beta 3.0.4 so that may help?

First class but make sure flagged issues are genuine as it can flag genuine programs/files as suspicious, but still a great product for cleaning up an infected PC !

Last 3 versions have been crashing my Win 10 X64 on the clean, this was always great, now has a problem for me, not sure why they have updated last 3 days or so but not good for me right now unfortunately!

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.
Respect.

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.

(sigh...)

You know what they say --

"Fool me once, shame on you --

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

another nice tool to have does the job well that others might have missed

Scratch my previous review. It does do an update to a database but still removes the program and tells you to download the latest. If this were a MS product we would be condemning this behaviour.

GREAT!! It would seem that I wasn't the only one who found the update system rather tedious. Upon first load it updates a database file.

Does a good job of seeking out malware but should be used with caution as can flag some legitimate keys or folders as bad when they are OK, so check carefully what the program intends to delete.
