ADW cleaner is not
a malware scanner. It removes toolbars, adware, and other similar
unwanted promotional software, but it does not remove destructive malware and
cannot substitute for a malware scanner like Malwarebytes.

[TechTalk] Removing System Healer with Malwarebytes or Spy
So I don’t know how,
but it seems I have some malware on one of my desktop machines called System
Healer. Browser hijacker, redirector, false positives with prompts to buy
protection tools, etc.
In any event,
Looking around on how to remove it, I come across the solution of using Spy
Hunter. I’m a Malwarebytes user and on this particular machine, I simply
hadn’t’ gotten around to installing Malwarebytes (oh well). I downloaded and
ran a demo version of Malwarebytes (V 1.75) but the machine comes up clean
even though I still see System healer on my computer.
My question is this,
is there a way to specifically target a process or folder or file to scan
and quarantine with Malwarebytes? Searching around, I can select a drive or
type of scan (full, quick or flash), but can’t find anything to target a
That aside, has
anyone used Spy Hunter and have they found it to be accessible with Jaws? In
my case, JFW 17. Naturally, the scan and detect aspects are free, but
removal is only with a license. I’m not against paying for a malware tool.
I’ve got a paid version of Malwarebytes on my personal laptop, but before I
go and shell out $30 or $40, I’d like to know whether I would even be able
to use it at all without calling over the sighted wife to the
anyone dealt with this program and were they able to remove it from their
system with any particular tool that is reasonably Jaws accessible? There
are manual instructions on how to remove System healer, but they involve
delving into the registry, other system files and so on. I’d prefer not to
go that route if possible.
