Since this is a current thread and I basically have the same types of concerns/questions as the thread-starter regarding the use of ADWCleaner, I am going to post here. Hope I'm not using too poor of board etiquette.
So, just real quickly, are these HKLM Chrome Extensions files/folders anything to worry about? They seem odd to me because of the long and random looking letter suffixes. Should I delete these?
I'm just nervous after hearing about mals using fake Chrome extensions lately.
(Also, see question about third image below.)
The one that really threw me was this file called "END". I found a few discussion links on it but nothing difinitive. Is it dangerous? Should I remove it?
Thanks for any helpful thoughts!
Oh, and I am a Windows 8.1 user.
P.S. My machine checked out OK on Emsisoft, Norton IS, and MalwareBytes earlier today. Machine seems to be running great and is not showing any typical symptoms of infection.
