I have been using the above site and ticking this.
Good or Bad?

Yes, nothing has changed.

As I said before it was after downloading from there, it would state it was out of date.

Clicking the OK as shown in John's screenshot to get the newer version would direct to a different site.



https://toolslib.net/downloads/viewd.../1-adwcleaner/

Why? I don't know. I was just pointing out what happened.

My guess would be a delay in updating the new version being linked on Bleeping Computer.

So all is well.
As long as all is well. Carry on.

Thanks for the information. I will just wait for the bugs to be worked out.

There are no bugs, it was just that the Bleeping Computer link at that time was still offering a previous version, which is no longer the case.

When running that previous version, besides the unsigned software warning,

Adwcleaner-2015-11-02_08h38_49.png

It would pop this dialogue up,

Adwcleaner-2015-11-02_08h39_13.png

Clicking OK on that directs to,

https://toolslib.net/downloads/viewd.../1-adwcleaner/

Which is apparently coded into the program.

You forget I'm paranoid.
What I want to be sure of is the new version once installed has no problems.
I know mine is outdated and I don't care if their is a pop up.
I can deal with a pop up.

What I do care about is if the new version is having problems other than the damn pop up.

That is my concern.

Does the new version cause any problems?
I do not want to be recommending AdwCleaner if the new version is having known problems.

Well your initial concern was about the link,

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.
As for what the OP experienced, I didn't have the same experience they did.

It seems a system restore fixed whatever that was,

The "damn popup" was first mentioned by ICIT2LOL and my posts were just adding that I also got the same thing.

Xplode has it set so that it checks the version at toolslib and if it finds a newer version prompts to download it.

Its possible there was a bug in this routine causing that alert or we were hosting an older version.

Xplode has a mirror here that he uploads the latest version too, its possible he forgot to upload the latest one for a few days. Will look into it.

Right now we are hosting the latest one, so he must have synched it up.
