Windows 7: Adwcleaner advice required.

To summarize:

1. I should download a fresh version of Adwcleaner on each occasion I intend to run the operation so that I have the most recent edition.
2. I should download AdwCleaner in 'Bleeping Computer' or 'UKV Ultra Virus Killer'. I understand from other sources that one needs to take care with UKV if using some of its clean-up contents as misuse through misunderstanding can harm the OS.
3. I should download AdwCleaner to the desktop and run as an administrator in order to obtain maximum effectiveness.

Thank you all for you responses to my enquiry.

Well, use the 'Bleeping Computer' method if you like. Download a fresh copy each time you use it if not using multiple times on the same day - after removing the old copy.

Only use the UVK method if you want to auto-update AdwCleaner and if you want to make use of the other built in third party updaters/ scanners like MBAM, SAS & JRT. Personally I add other third party apps to the list and launch them from within UVK as I find it easier.

Note: Don't use UVK for system repair unless you know the required fix. It's never screwed up my system but if you run a fix in the "system repair" section or use the registry cleaner or process/ service manger utilities without understanding the results or making a backup then you're asking for trouble.
