What does this mean? I dont see any option to check or uncheck anything.


Also heres another thing. A while back i used this program and i recalled i saw lot of stuff and just cleaned. I didnt saw an option to check anything at all. Im positive on this...
So, maybe it found nothing to delete. If you're clean, it wouldn't find anything.

If the SCAN has finished, and then one by one you click each tab and see nothing listed, then you're in great shape already and there's nothing further for ADWCleaner to remove.

No you cannot. Adwcleaner would really have not much purpose scanning it anyway. Most infections to usb devices are: trojans, viruses, worms.

AdwCleaner is a program that searches for and deletes Adware, Toolbars, Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUP), and browser Hijackers from your computer. By using AdwCleaner you can easily remove many of these types of programs for a better user experience on your computer and while browsing the web.
If you want to scan your usb, try malwarebytes or another antivirus/antimalware program.

Hi,
You seem almost disappointed Adwcleaner didn't find anything :/

But yes you can use Superantispyware and or Malwarebytes to scan flash media devices,
Each has the options to add the scans to the right click context menu for quick access to either,
Cheers.
