I have just run for the first time the above program.
It took a little longer than expected, maybe 5 mins or so.
I was surprised to see from the report that it found & Removed quite a few instances of Junkware.
I was further surprised to see that the located junkware, was associated with only 2 of my 3 installed browsers.
So nothing found for Chrome, but both IE & FF seemed to be targets.
Strange since Chrome is my default browser.
Is it the case that this program does not yet check Chrome?
Guidance welcome.

The tool should check Chrome as well while it is scanning; it will say "Checking Google Chrome".

However, in the log report, the Chrome subsection will only appear if something was detected. The same applies to Mozilla FireFox.
