No, if you're done with it just delete it or click the uninstall button.
Derek, why would you uninstall it. I get AdWare every week so I keep the program. Anything wrong with that ?
When you're finished with it, uninstall it. AdwCleaner is constantly updating it's definitions, so you will need to download a fresh version if you need it again.

Thanks Jacee. That's a good reason and makes sense.
