AdwCleaner developed by Xplode is a simple, portable little application that requires no hard installation. The application itself is just over 500KB and is probably easier to use than any alternative you’ve ever tried. It works on 32 and 64-bit versions of XP, Vista, 7, and 8.
Sometimes, a freeware seems too good to be free. It comes with a cost that you may not realize. Many applications are being wrapped with secondary installers that attempt to get all sorts of crapware on your machine. The author of the software you’re originally installing can make plenty of cash by bundling toolbars and homepage hijacks in the installation process. It’s a mess, but that’s just how “free” works. The best way to avoid this problem is to be very careful during installation processes. Sometimes, they slip past even the best of us. AdwCleaner can help you with removing adware or other junkware.
Using AdwCleaner is very simple, you must only download the program and run it. When the program is tarted you will see a screen that contains a Search and Delete button. The Search button will cause AdwCleaner to search your computer for unwanted like adware or other junkware related programs and AdwCleaner will display a log showing the various files, folders, and registry entries that are modified by the adware or other junkware.
To delete these adware or other junkware related programs simply click on the Delete button, which will cause AdwCleaner to reboot your computer and remove the files and registry entries associated with the various adware or other junkware that you are removing. On reboot, AdwCleaner will display a log showing the files, folders, and registry entries that were removed, this log will be also saved on your systemdrive as well.
Why do you care about this information? You should. Look over what is found on your system and ask yourself how it got there. Research the names on Google and try to come to a conclusion. Maybe you’ll uncover that your system is further infected than you’ve ever assumed. It’s good to learn from your mistakes.
