We are happy to finally share with you the new AdwCleaner 8.3.2! It contains many small bugfixes, and we also spent a lot of time working on improving the web browsers module. However we have been facing more challenges than expected, so we weren't able to ship all the changes we wanted to initially - that new feature will be completed in the next release. The changelog is available below: ## v8.3.2 [23/03/2022] ### Changes * Enhance logging around process termination * Ongoing work to improve the web browsers module * Logfiles are now sorted by ID (rather than alphabetical as previously) * Update definitions to 2022.03.15.1 * Update translations. ### Bugfixes * Fix a DLL hijacking issue. * Fix the Portuguese translation. You can download the new version here: https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner

Hello, We're happy to finally ship AdwCleaner 8.3.1, several bumpy months after the past version. This release headlines is mostly about stability and making sure Windows 11 is fully supported, which it is (this means that AdwCleaner is now designed to work on all Windows between Windows 7 to Windows 11 included). We also took care of fixing several annoying bugs to make scanning and cleaning as stable as possible. The changelog is available below: ## v8.3.1 [22/11/2021] ### New Features * Official support for Windows 11. There is one cosmetic glitch that we are aware of and that will be fixed in an upcoming version. * Add support for Windows Installer in basic repair actions. ### Changes * Update definitions to 2021.11.18.1 * Update translations. ### Bugfixes * It is now possible to use /path again in parallel of other commands. * Fix startup issues on Windows 10 under specific conditions. * Fix a crash due to parsing a malformed /etc/hosts file. * Fix the German translation. You can download the latest version there as usual: https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner Last but not least, I want to use this release announcement as an special opportunity to give a warm thank you to @nikhils for all his work on AdwCleaner and beyond over all these years. 👏

Hello, We're glad to release AdwCleaner 8.2 as a major release. This version updates all translations, and reintroduces the Brazilian Portuguese variant that is used by a large number of users. It also adds the ability to delete one or more logfiles directly from the UI, making it easy to keep a tidy history. The changelog is available below: ## v8.2.0 [22/03/2021] ### New Features * Support Brazilian Portuguese translation. * It is now possible to delete logfiles directly from the UI. ### Changes * Update translations. * Update definitions to 2021.03.22.1 ### Bugfixes * Correctly display the number of scanned items in all places. As usual, you can download AdwCleaner here: https://malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner
5. ## AdwCleaner 8.1 - Beta

Hello, We silently published a beta build of AdwCleaner 8.1 last night. It has since been downloaded a few hundred times without any issues reported, so we now would like to share it to a broader audience before we move to GA. The beta version is available to download there, and we plan to release it next week as stable if no issue appears. AdwCleaner 8.1 brings parallelism in scanning operations, or said differently we rework the scan in order to make it (much much) faster. Since most of the scanning module are IO-bound (and not CPU-Bound), we now make use of multiple threads depending on what the CPU can offer us so that modules can be run in parallel when possible. This allows to make AdwCleaner's scan even faster than before, even on low-end machines. Please let us know what you feel and see by testing this beta build!

Hello, We're excited to release AdwCleaner 8.1 as a major release. Indeed, the scanning operations now happen in parallel rather than sequentially so that AdwCleaner scans more elements at the same time. The scan was already pretty fast (between a few seconds and ~2min for the 95 percentile), but it will be blazing fast with this release. This will allow you to spend less time trying to get rid of annoyances, and more time on things you actually enjoy :) We also want to thank you the beta testers to help confirm the 8.1 was stable. The changelog is available below: ## v8.1.0 [15/02/2021] ### New Features * Make the scan operations multi-threaded to further increase scanning speed on all types of machines. As usual, you can download AdwCleaner here: https://malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner

Hello, We've released AdwCleaner 8.0.9.1 as a patch release. It doesn't contain any new feature or visible change compared to 8.0.9. However, this version is now packed by default with a custom UPX build that fixes a startup issue faced by several users who have been unable to launch AdwCleaner at all. It has been almost a year-long effort to finally pinpoint the root cause of this annoying bug, so we're happy to finally get it out of the doors. The changelog is available below: ## v8.0.9.1 [20/01/2021] ### Changes * Update the UPX build used to pack AdwCleaner in order to fix startup issues faced by several users. As usual, you can download AdwCleaner here: https://malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner

Hello, We're pleased to share AdwCleaner 8.0.7. Its main additional feature is the new ability to change the working directory location when the default (C:\AdwCleaner) is blocked by some infections preventing AdwCleaner to run. Until now AdwCleaner was defaulting to the "AdwCleaner" directory right in system drive, and since 8.0.7 it is possible to specify other paths as necessary. This is only exposed to the CLI for now as it is an advanced mitigation. To use it, simply pass /path C:\your\custom\path\to\AdwCleaner\directory to any CLI calls. Note that you need to enclose the path between double-quotes if it contains any spaces. We also introduced a few bugfixes that overall enhance the experience for both the CLI and the GUI. As usual, the changelog is available below: ## v8.0.7 [22/07/2020] ### New Features * Support /path command line option to customize the working directory. * Support /noreboot command line option to prevent closing of applications and rebooting after cleaning. * Hide the console earlier in the startup routine when launching the GUI. ### Changes * Update Russian translations * Update definitions to 2020.07.21.1 ### Bugfixes * Fix GUI behavior after reboot post cleaning. AdwCleaner is available for download: https://malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner

Hello, We are pleased to announce AdwCleaner 8.0.6, which despite its version number is a major milestone that contains a long-awaited feature: the command-line interface. AdwCleaner CLI allows you to programmatically use AdwCleaner without having to interact with the graphical interface. It makes it easy to integrate it with your workflow and environment, even in a GUI-less remote session! The command line interface is consistent with the GUI version, so comes with two modes: Scan: /scan Only do a scan, but do not clean. The only difference with the GUI is that Preinstalled Applications will not be listed and thus not selected for being quarantined - see /preinstalled below. Clean: /clean Scan and automatically clean all detected elements. This will also automatically reboot the computer afterwards to complete the cleaning process. Help: /? Display the CLI usage information. In addition, several options are available: /eula: Accept the EULA. This is only needed once per machine. /noreboot: Do not automatically reboot after the cleaning process. /preinstalled: Include Preinstalled Application in the detections and move them automatically to quarantine during cleaning. Use with care. The location of the log files and quarantine are not changed compared with the GUI. They are usually located in C:\AdwCleaner. This path will be customizable in the next release, so you will be able to choose the logfile location. If no command line arguments are present, then the usual GUI will show up. Usage example: * Scan only: AdwCleaner.exe /eula /scan * Scan, then clean and reboot: AdwCleaner.exe /eula /clean * Scan, then clean but do not reboot: AdwCleaner.exe /eula /clean /noreboot * Use the Graphical interface (same executable): AdwCleaner.exe We hope that this version will help you to make your work easier. We will add more features in the next releases (ability to customize the logfile output, to empty the quarantine, etc..) but we want to hear from your usage and experience with AdwCleaner CLI. As usual, the whole changelog is available below: ## v8.0.6 [01/07/2020] ### New Features * Command line interface to scan and clean without the GUI. More details in the release announcement. ### Bugfixes * Fix reintroduction of DLL loading vulnerability reintroduced in 8.0.5. AdwCleaner (both CLI and GUI) can be downloaded from the usual place: https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner

Hello, AdwCleaner 7.4.2 is now available! This new minor version focuses on improving the stability of the new 7.4 branch that added a few regressions. We are really focused on the quality and stability of the code for all the upcoming versions, and this one is just the first step. The updater window that has been preventing the users to auto-update has been fixed - however this will be impactful on the next update only (7.4.3 or 8.0). It means that you will have to update manually for this version by going to the download webpage. A few users have been facing freezes during the cleaning process. This has been a longstanding issue hard to reproduce, but this new versions includes more fixes to make the cleaning process more reliable. Those freezes should not occur anymore! See below for the whole changelog: ## v7.4.2 [21/10/2019] ### New Features ### Changes - Update log level for certain debugging messages - Update definitions to 2019.10.21.1 ### Bugfixes - Fix broken updater - Fix Pokki detection - Make the cleaning process more reliable As usual, the download takes place here!

Hello, This release time-frame took more than two months in the making, but we're happy to finally release the next major branch of AdwCleaner, the 7.3 series. This 7.3 serie will focus on detection and stability and should be quickly replaced by the next major serie that will bring a major new feature... But more about that very soon! We focused on improving the internal detection engine to make it more efficient and flexible. It will allow to reduce the amount of FPs significantly and to react faster to them, in addition to catch more threats quickly. We've also fixed several UX glitches and various minor bugs.

We'll then be able to study and make the appropriate changes to the detections as needed. We're actively working on major features that take time to be developed (which explain the delay since the 7.2.4 release), we hope to share them very soon.
