  1. ADW vs MBAM

    Hello, It's not AdwCleaner is a portable scanner/remediation tool which doesn't need to be installed on the system. It's one self-contained and low on resources executable (whereas MBAM requires to be installed and is a more heavy). It's also more focused on PUP/Adware/Toolbars and related infections, thus it's able to scan and remove them faster than MBAM which is able to catch more threats and not only toolbars/adware/... . So it really depends on your needs here, but both are complementary and a lot of people are doing that. Regards,
