On Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1, I ran AdwCleaner v3.016 (out of curiosity) and found that it targeted the "OpenDNS Updater" for removal. Is this correct behavior? I thought that using OpenDNS was a good thing.

The Updater is useful if you are using OpenDns to filter websites. Some users found that without it their system would revert to using their ISP's DNS server.
Looking online a bit, I don't see any complaints or any user suggesting that it puts ads on your computer.
Unless someone has another opinion or knows different, I suggest you not allow AdwCleaner to remove it.
I use OpenDNS and am sure that I do not have the Updater. Never downloaded it. No problems with Open DNS for maybe 3 years or so.

Another thought....If you downloaded the updater from any place other than here:
Windows IP Updater This is the officially supported OpenDNS Windows client, which sends your network's new IP Address to OpenDNS whenever it should change.
the download may have contained adware.
If you don't remember where you downloaded from, I recommend removing the updater and get the download from link above.
