I ran Adw Cleaner on my pc and it proposed a lot to delete.

Strange because I use a good antivirus and regularly run scans with MBAM and SuperAntispyware

First I saw 2 maps in Program files.

I checked the maps. One was empty

One Contained Driver max.

As I am not using DriverMax I uninstalled it with Revo Uninstaller.

I then deleted both files.


I find it surprising that Adw Cleaner proposes to delete a map containing a program.


I have not done anything yet with registry entries proposed for deletion.
