    Make sure you set your file manager to display hidden and system files. If Adware-Patrol uses rootkit technologies, use our RootAlyzer or our Total Commander anti-rootkit plugins.
    You will have to use a global search for files without a name specified. Be extra careful, because just the name might not be enough to identify files!

    Important: There are more files that cannot be safely described in simple words. Please use Spybot-S&D to remove them.
