  • Malware not removed

    I have a number of adware that are not removed or still come through the Pro version.
    The biggest offender is Ad by WebShield.
    There are also these that come through.

    RegClean Pro
    PC utilities pro[DOMAIN]&subaff2=201551&subaff3=&subaff4=glad

    I would like to get all of these removed but none of them are flagged by Pro.
    Thank you
