ICIT2LOL, something is wrong with what you see. I don't get any other *linked* site.... just the direct download from BC forums.

Without trying to derail this thread, I will say I get the same thing when trying to run it from your previous link to BC.

The link from BC downloads fine, it's when running it that happens.

It first warns about not being signed then when I run it it says it's out of date and if you click to get the updated version it goes to toolslib.

I noticed it yesterday and it just did it again when I tried it here

Okay I'm discombobulated.

Someone just post the proper site or sites to download AdwCleaner.
I'm getting a head ache and I have been out of Old #7 for a week.

No not trying to do that was curious because I was being linked to toolibs.

Yes I think I have found what is going on my Toshiba laptop which I am sure was infected with whatever did that toolibs thing and my home main laptop and the other desktops the bleeping link did what it is supposed to do.

So I have clean installed the Toshiba and will see when I get chance to see whatever happens.

Sorry OP (Matty) for the diversion it has a fix for me at least and avoided another unnecessary thread.

I was pointing out that the same thing happens with me John, so I doubt it was an infection.
