Hi maxonnxc :)

Files cannot be attached in this section. If you want to post a screenshot here, you'll have to host it on a website like Imgur.com (takes a few seconds to upload and link). Also, can you start AdwCleaner, click on the Uninstall button, then download AdwCleaner from the link below and try to execute it? Make sure it's located on your Desktop.

v4.2.0.2 is listed as the latest version here at BC but the AdwCleaner download page indicates 4.2.0.3.

Starting with v4, AdwCleaner's database and AdwCleaner's code were separated. AdwCleaner uses a SQLite database stored on toolslib server and each new version of AdwCleaner will contain an embedded database. AdwCleaner automatically checks on every start for the newest database and downloads it (if available and there is a working Internet connection) regardless of what version is installed. When you attempt to run an older version of AdwCleaner, the program will automatically check for updates. If one is found, AdwCleaner you provide a message advising you are running an outdated version and ask you to click OK (or Cancel) in order to open the download page so you can get the latest version.

If you click the Cancel button instead of OK, AdwCleaner will automatically download the database definitions in a manner similar to Malwarebytes and open it's main interface when done so you can use it and perform a scan. This means when the database is updated, a new version of AdwCleaner will not have to be compiled for download.

The AdwCleaner download page indicated 4.2.0.3 but when I downloaded the other day it actually was the older version. Since then the developer updated with the correct version. As of this morning, the BC download link is still for v4.2.0.2.

And you now know you can update the database and scan with an older version.

He does not need to do that since he already has that version.
