Hi -

This is my current link to AdWare Cleaner, but it may not remove all Whitesmoke toolbar infections -

First - Try to remove any current install of AdWare Cleaner, from Control Panel > Programs (or Add/Remove)

Please also list your Operating System (XP, Vista, Win7, etc), and Make / Model of computer -


Download AdWare Cleaner and install it
Close all open programs and browsers as the program will reboot your computer
NOTE: You may need to disable your Antivirus while this runs Information on A/V control (temp disable) HERE if needed
XP users Double click on the program to run it
Note: Vista and Windows users, Right click and select Run as Admin......
Confirm each time with OK
Your computer will Reboot and a notepad text will show the results
Please post that back here


Next - Junkware Removal Tooll by thisisu
Download Junkware Removal Tool
Disable your Antivirus program if required - See details above -
For vista and windows 7 right click on the tool and select run as administrator
After the scan is completed, post the generated log here.


Note that a Moderator may move the topic to a better area of the forum -

Thank You -

When I try to run adwcleaner.exe on my Windows 7 machine I get a SWLite error:  SqLite3.dll can't be loaded.(1)


What's going on? And how can I fix it?
