AdwCleaner

Hello
Just ran Adw 1st time in long time, does anyone know where to look to see what these items are so I know what will be removed.I try to Google but when I enter the string it just comes up with everyones log file. Don't want to delete anything that says Microsoft in the string.

Thanks

Take a peek at each one to see which one will work for you.

Hi
I know how to use it, but before I hit clean I looked at the report to see what was there and I am trying to find out if they are important or just junk

Hi,
You could just post the scan results as a text attachment or simply copy and paste
Then we might be able to review the listings,
But in general adwcleaner only finds things you don't want
Cheers.

Hi,
If you want to also post an image/ screen shot of your programs and features/ uninstall a program list,
On the top right next to the question mark switch the page to List and you'll most likely get everything in one screen shot,
Cheers.

Your malwarebytes is seriously out of date :/
Is that the lifetime license version or Free version ?
Last I remember the last main version before 2.0... was 1.75...

Its the free one, it always updates when I start it. To be honest I had it awhile never had a pop up saying new ver. but I will get the newer one very soon.
Thanks for the good eyes..

No problem please do use the new 2.0.4.1028 version,
http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free
Use the custom full scan and make sure Rootkit is Enabled in Scan settings,
This might pick up some items that are listed in adwcleaners scan but I'd say you safe in getting rid of what adwcleaner found,
Cheers.

Hi,
You should seriously consider picking up one of the last lifetime licenses for mbam
It's either that or use a different antivirus MSE is not a good choice unless you have mbam pro/ premium,
Amazon.com: malwarebytes antimalware PRO
I believe there is also a offer for just the activation code for about 30.u.s. well worth it imho
Cheers.
