    @RubbeR DuckY Do you have any plans to improve the user interface? AdwCleaner excells at detecting adware and unwanted software, but because it lists the detected files and registry keys without saying what threat each one belongs to, it makes it a real hassle if there is anything detected that you actually want to keep (of course this isn't a problem if you just want to delete everything detected).

    For example, if you look at the above picture, the only way to find out any information on these registry keys would be to type them into Google.

    I am glad, I am not the only one, who feels that way. So many good products dying. Jetico, Private Firewall, Ghostery, AdwCleaner and the list goes on. :doubt:

    Why do you say that? From my experience with cleaning infected computers, I find that Malwarebytes Anti-Malware continues to do a very good job at detecting malware. No longer is it enough to just run one tool to clean computers, but I always run MBAM along with other software on infected computers, because I know it will detect some malware or adware.
