    Can't see the full keys.

    In this one:

    before you take your screenshot, just to the left of the word "Value", hover your mouse pointer and you'll be able to drag that column to the right, so we can see the full value. OK?

    Yes, expand the columns so you can read enough.
    Also, everything to be removed should be checked, anything that stays should be unchecked.
    I thought you didn't want to get rid of AOL/Viewpoint yet, so that's why I only suggested to get rid of the 2 SEARCHSCOPES keys.

    Simrick I was going to stay with AOL only IF I could get rid of Viewpoint. It is snapping away again. But it is able to be checked for removal...could/would that help?

    Okay ,I have been having the screenshots AGAIN. After I did what was suggested last night they were gone. They are back again.... drat...

    I did find this... http://www.wikihow.com/Delete-Viewpoint-Spyware

    Could someone take a look and see if it would possibly work???

    Still waiting for directions for ADWCleaner....what to keep and what to save. Not doing anything till I get some feedback. So greatful for everyone helping me.

    That's much better with the width of the display data, but, unfortunately, it's looks like a cross between Arabic and Russian! Honestly, I can't read a thing.

    I would delete the Viewpoint, but if you don't do the trick in that link I posted, it'll probably come right back. I am not familiar enough with AOL browser to know if it'll work without all the baggage it wants to put on your machine. I haven't used it since the mid 90's when AOL would mail you the CD at least 3 times a week.

    I'm still of the opinion you should get rid of AOL entirely and go to a more common browser like Chrome, Firefox, Edge. There must be a way to export all your favorites and such so you could import them to another, and go forward.

    I can't enlarge the picture to see it, so I can't tell.
    I wouldn't delete the the Viewpoint stuff through ADWCleaner until after I've uninstalled it properly through Program and Features.

    You can keep your AOL email address, just access your email using a normal browser. I think if you uninstall the AOL browser, most of the junk will go along with it, but then you'd want to run ADWCleaner to get rid of the leftovers.

    At any rate, the SearchScopes stuff has to go - only those 2 boxes should be checked in ADWCleaner.

    All you do is open a normal browser and navigate to

    Code:
    https://mail.aol.com/
    AOL.com - Welcome to AOL
    There you can login to your account.
    You don't need the AOL browser - it's just spyware and garbage.
