Hi:

Did you reboot when AdwCleaner prompted to do so?
Perhaps you can post the log from AdwCleaner, to see what it removed?
(It will be AdwCleanerC*.txt, where * is the number of completed scans -- in your case, it will probably 1, if this is the first time your ran it.)

Yes, a system restore might work.

If not, you might want to head over to this thread here, which the developer monitors:
AdwCleaner False Positive Reporting Topic - Anti-Virus and Anti-Malware Software

Hope this helps,

Yep Moxie assuming the machine was rebooted after ADW it should have popped up the findings and yes it would be good to see what they were - good suggestion

before trying anything else too dramatic, (such as a system restore), try this:
Open the run command (Win+R)
type inetcpl.cpl (hit enter)
go to the advanced tab
click the bottom right button to reset IE to factory settings
let it do it's thing, click ok, try IE now. . .

Hmm well I would have thought a factory restore would be a tad more drastic than a system restore as you would need you have just about everything backed up??

Oops sorry my bad misunderstood that one
