Clicked clean and it proceeded to go thru and 'clean' my system, and now the internet, both Internet explorer and Firefox are running so much slower than before. What happened?

I have not heard that issue associated with running AdwCleaner...in fact, by removing junk add-ons and extensions, it should speed things up.

AdwCleaner should have created a folder located at C:\AdwCleaner. All AdwCleaner.txt logs are all stored in that folder including the Cleaning report log. Please copy and paste the contents of AdwCleaner[S0].txt in your next reply for review.
