I ran Adware Cleaner trying to get rid of Bing (which it didn't) and now my documents have been quarantined and have a .VIR ending.  I tried to restore my computer to an earlier date but no help.  Advice?

The AdwCleaner folder contains sub-folders for Backup and Quarantine. Each of these folders contain sub-folders of the exact location (full path) an entry (file/folder) was removed from so they can be safely restored.

If a particular program you recognize and want to keep is detected as a PUP by a security scanner, it usually can be restored from quarantine and added to the exclusion or ignore list.

To restore a file in AdwCleaner, run it again.
  • Click Tools > Quarantine manager.
  • A log file of what was removed will open in a new window.
  • Scroll through the list and find the entry you want to restore.
  • Place a check mark in the box next to the entry(s).
  • Click the Restore button.
