I had recently done a system restore to undo the whole bug Adwcleaner had in a previous version and in the current version I ran it... and got a new entry referring to some kind of scheduled task. However now when I open Task Scheduler, it complains that Proxy no longer exists or something along that lines and I should click Refresh and then the thing comes up again. Was it a false positive?

I have this problem, too, so will be very interested in the fix -- oddly, despite the error msg, we still get the list of running tasks and can even modify them.  Noticed that you have Chrome and you also had a bug that's now removed.  Chrome gets its hooks into everything, and it's possible that something Chrome needs was removed along with the bug.  Seems like a longshot, I know, but after I (improperly) uninstalled Chrome using Windows uninstall feature without taking a necessary preliminary step, I had strange, strange problems that took forever to find and fix.  I had to move up to IE 11 to make any progress.  Would suggest that you go to the official Chrome page, follow the destrux exactly, and download/install a fresh version.  ALSO, you've used AdwCleaner, which I like, but did you specify which items to clean by clicking on the different topics?  If not, it will have "cleaned" some things that you'll wish it hadn't. I did that, just hit the clean-all button, and then looked at what it had done. Too late! At any rate, I don't have the energy to shoot yet another bug, especially when you've already posed the problem so clearly...  I'll just wait to see what the pros' answer(s) are.        'Proxy'   :spider   "Catch me if you can!"

Sorry! Looks like you posted again on June 8 and got at least a preliminary answer (why these 2 posts are not shown together, I don't know).   Anyway, my suggestions are still valid and may help someone with Chrome or AdwCleaner issues.
