Following the installation of Exployer 11, I have be inundated with unwanted pop-ups. I have set the pop-up blocker to maximum, even removing all allowed pop-ups in the list.  Still the problem persists.

I plan to download & try ADWCLEANER.  Is it safe?

All comments welcome.

I'm guessing that you meant Explorer 11?


Where did you download this from?


AdwCleaner is safe, go ahead and run it.


Please download AdwCleaner and run it.
An image like the one below will open, click on Scan.
Once the search is complete a list of the pending items will be displayed.  If you see any which you do not want removed, remove the check mark next to it.  
Click on Clean to remove the selected items.  
You will receive a message telling you that all programs will be close so that the infections can be removed.  Click on Ok.
When cleaning process is complete a log of what was removed will be presented.  Please copy and the paste this log in your next post.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
