  1. I have tried to follow the steps as close as possibly for removal of this Nationzoom malware. I have never seen anything like this diabolical thing and I’m not sure I got it all. It seems to just be re-producing itself. I remove it and it and it makes 2 more in its place. We will see what happens at the end. I’m thrilled as well as grateful, that people have given their time and extraordinary talents to help us make this right. I just think when I’m finished that I will have screwed it up. I wills post what everything looks like then.
    Thanks, :Carol

  2. Hi, I would just like to thank you guys for this beautiful tool. It has helped me and many others with malicious software. All in good deeds. Andy

  3. I have to say you must be impressing someone. I had malware that originated from freeware that I didn’t supervise properly while installing. There were about three or four forms and I had trouble identifying all sources. When I located a website that correctly identified the main problem and offered suggestions about how to resolve it, one of the suggestions was to use AdwCleaner. When I tried to go to the link, the popups went mad trying to block me and redirect me to their clients. Good news is that AdwCleaner solved all sources of malware instantly.

  4. This thing worked like a brand new blender. Perfectly. It even threw out all the old messed up pineapples and moldy blueberries on my computer, and all I was left with was a beautiful browsing smoothie. I recommend this to ANYONE plagued with those “shoppers’ experience” pieces of trash. 3 thumbs up.

  5. Thank you so much. I’ve managed to get rid of the Aztec programs. Thank you

    Hey guys, you really helped me; that was just wonderful, especially the TornTV was real stubborn, but you helped me do things fast.
    I am not a rich guy yet, but tell me how can I help you? Maybe, by telling my friends about your site?
    Keep up the good work folks. Appreciate it.

  7. Thank you very much after restart its really works ones again thanks from my bottom of heart.

  8. Sorry to ask.

    But when I attempt to get the Adwcleaner I get redirected to a sign in for Piwik.

    I have no idea how to sign up for it.

    Can someone please help?

  9. So far, unbelievable! I could never imagine it would work so fast.
    You guys really deserve to get all the best, thanks a lot!

  10. Can someone please help? When I run the Adwcleaner program it seems to work but then when I hit Clean, it freezes up and won’t respond. Any ideas what to do? Thanks!

  11. Thank you so much. I get sad with any unusual happening on my laptop. Some bloody Bing.vs thing, hugs and kisses.

  12. Adwcleaner downloaded. Will not work. Will not close. Cannot uninstall. Please assist.

    If you’re thinking about using this, chances are you’re a bit skeptical about it. I mean, if you needed it, you probably just had your computer infected after downloading another sketchy file. That’s how I felt, but was desperate enough to take the leap of faith. Here is my opinion on this:

    USE IT

    I rarely leave comments, but this is the only thing that worked and it worked so well that I felt obligated to come back and praise it. Throw out the skepticism and hit download already, that virus is only going to get worse!

  14. This works like magic. Quick and efficient. Though I did have to reset my Chrome settings since one malware program apparently got missed in the cleanup.

  15. Thank you for this post! I am so happy that this removed in my browser after trying other malware removal program. Only Adwcleaner clean and remove permanently this stubborn browser.

  16. Appreciations Unlimited

    So smooth really appreciate you search algorithms.
    Works like a charm.


  17. I have locked malware in my trash and can’t delete them. They are Javeview.update.plist and Manrolling.update.plist. How do I remove them. I have tried everything including Malwarebytes. I also have Kernel task eating lots of memory on my mac. I need help!! Thank you.

  18. Thanks so much!! I especially appreciated that you posted malware fixes step by step, given that I have limited knowledge of computer programs & therefore tend to be suspicious & get stressed out about accidentally downloading something malicious.

  19. This was a company called Techcube trying to sell you tools and antivirus when they show you that you have a virus on your computer. Sells for as high as 499.99 but disguising themselves as a Microsoft tech. When you dont buy he leaves all that adware on your computer and hangs up. Someone needs to report them to Microsoft. Not okay to put bloatware on your computer to try to sell you something, also not okay to pretend like they are Microsoft tech guys. Tried to tell me Avast and Malwarebytes were not good programs to have because they are free. But guess what, those 2 along with Revo Uninstaller got rid of all of their stuff on my computer. Thanks to all you guys!

  20. Thank you so much! It helped me! I was annoyed by the virus called Noad Variance TV.

  21. Hello,

    I’m having trouble with this, every time I download the app once I go to exe I get this error:

    The app mac file opener can’t open the app

    Anyone have this happen and have a solution?

    Thanks in advance, this is an annoying malware.


  22. Same problem as Kate in 2015. It downloads and scans but will not delete the files. It freezes up. Kate did you find a solution?

  23. What if the computer infected with cherimoya cannot open any websites in any browser anymore, cannot run Malwarebytes or install Malwarebytes even when I attempt to install from a flash drive?

    It seems I have a bit of a roadblock here.

    In an old MBAM log that detected Cherimoya. I discovered a rootkit. I think it may be the same? when it was infected Malwarebytes scanned and discovered over 300 + threats and I chose delete on reboot but when re-scanned after it was the same thing.

  24. Anyone had any success removing cookie? It resists AdwCleaner as it did with CCleaner and Malwarebytes.
