-in French this one; ur GUI language version is of your country, I think ..

We see these buttons, under Actions:
Scan, Clean, Report, Uninstall.
- then these tabs, under Results:
Services, Folders, Files, Shortcuts, Scheduled Tasks, Registry, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome.

This Second Opinion Malware Scanner is an must-have.

- I make download of AdwCleaner each time before the scan, so I'm sure to have the latest version .. don't use IE8 cause it is too old ..

AdwCleaner is detected as an unsafe download by Google Chrome, just so people downloading it be aware that you'll have the "This program can harm your computer" message.

Haha, poor Google Chrome .. cause AdwCleaner is not the property of Google? Is Google jealous?

- sure, AdwCleaner is NOT bundled with third party softwares, and it do NOT spy on people ..
It's not that. It just happens everytime a new version of AdwCleaner is released. Even Antiviruses like avast! detects it. Same thing goes for RKill, RogueKiller, JRT, etc.

Overwhelming majority of the infected unfortunates on the forums, they are holders of Avast.

I know i already stated its a good tool, but i have to add that when i am cleaning malware for customers, i run this every time just to make sure my normal scans didn't miss anything in the browser.
