I am considering downloading and using ADW Cleaner.

1) Does anyone know a safe site to download from?

2) Any opinions on the product before I begin using it?

Thank You,

1) Official AdwCleaner author site: 

https://toolslib.net/downloads/viewdownload/1-adwcleaner/

2) Since this software doesn't give names to the items that is detected, so you have to be careful why this items is been detected as a threat. I been used this software for more than 2 years, and I been encounter few or more registry keys detection from AdwCleaner, but not until I did some researches and find out these detection is false positives.

As mentioned above, the best place to get it is from the official site.

A second good location to download it from is the bleepingcomputers web site...

As with any tools your run to clean potentially malicious items/files/registry keys, you have to do your homework so you don't damage your computer.

AdwCleaner's false positives can be reported on BleepingComputer (or on ToolsLib directly). The author have a thread up and running and helpers (such as M-K-D-B) will forward FP issues to him so they can be adressed.
