  1. Hello, I'm pleased to share the announcement of AdwCleaner 8.0.8! It contains various stability improvements and fixes over the 8.0.7: More precisely, we realized that some infections are locking AdwCleaner's working directory to prevent it from running so we now try to update the permissions on the working directory (by default C:\AdwCleaner) before using it, and inform you to use another directory from the command-line if we fail to change the attributes. We also improved the detection and cleanup logics, updated the translations and definitions. Another change we introd
  2. 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
  3. 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 Preinsta

  6. Hello, We are pleased to announce that AdwCleaner 8.0.2 is now released! This release brings exciting new features, as well as important bug fixes. The new capability to put under a spotlight is the reintroduction of the Hosts file scanner in order to detect any malicious redirections. Theses new detections are quarantined and each deleted line can be restored individually later on using the Quarantine. We also took a major stab at refining the translations compared to the previous releases, as some of these were starting to age - we covered the most used languages for this rele
  7. Hello, We are pleased to share the new AdwCleaner 8.0.1! In line to the improvements made in AdwCleaner 8, we've been pushing towards improving detection and remediation capabilities, and this time we focused on Mozilla Firefox. We completely rewrote the way we scan and clean Firefox addons, preferences, search engines, start pages, etc.. This allows to reduce the technology debt, to have a more maintainable codebase, and to gain in detection rate and remediation effectiveness. On top of this major change, we fixed a security vulnerability reported by Günter Born. AdwCleaner 7.0
  8. Hello, We are pleased to share a preview of the 8th major release of AdwCleaner! This version has been slowly worked on for a year now, and very actively for a few weeks and provides major improvements: We have upgraded our toolchain to a more modern suite in order to benefit from security improvements, various new compiler optimizations and to use new C++ features to get a cleaner and more efficient code. Although this change is mostly invisible, it has been a critical change to support our future work and to greatly reduce the technical debt. We moved to Qt 5.13 branch

  10. 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 durin
  11. well , this will be interesting if Malwarebytes team could to add something new to mb beta version 4 and should we have this also for the final release so what’s the plans are ? for me I’d be very happy to see a new protection module like an "anti-spam/email protection" and so on . and I would also suggest if this is possible to have the Malwarebytes’s firewall integrate into Malwarebytes version 4 .
  12. Hello, AdwCleaner 7.4.1 is now available! After the major 7.4 release, this versions brings numerous stability enhancements in various areas of the UI and the Engine. We also included a new setting (off by default) that allows to automatically reboot the computer without having to confirm the reboot notification, making the cleaning process even more straightforward.

The whole changelog is available below: ## v7.4.1 [02/09/2019] ### New Feat

We encourage you to take a look at the announcement blogpost to learn more about why we are now introducing this new detection category: https://blog.malwarebytes.com/malwarebytes-news/2019/07/your-device,-your-choice:-adwcleaner-now-detects-preinstalled-software/ On top of targeting preinstalled software, this version introduces several UI updates, like a new glossary of threat categories: We have a
  14. 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
  15. AdwCleaner 7.2.7 has been released! This version brings overall improvements in various areas of the code and definitions. It's likely the last one before the next major that is bringing changes we've been working on for quite a long time - stay tuned! The changelog for this version is available below: ## v7.2.7 [25/01/2019] ### New Features ### Changes - Update HSTS policy for network connections - Improve Firefox detections - Definitions 2018.01.25.2 ### Bugfixes - Fix French translation - Update generic detections - Update libsodium As always, you can get Adw
  16. AdwCleaner 7.2.5 has been released! This version contains numerous internal improvements as well as a new way to submit FPs in a very easy way: in the scan results panel, right-click on an item (family or element) and choose "Report False Positive". 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. The changelog for this version is available below: ## v7.2.5 [16/11/2018]
  17. AdwCleaner 7.2.4 has been released! This version contains a lot of stability improvements during analysis (some of you reported issues when no detections were found, which is now fixed) and the update process. The major feature of this release is the launch of the automatic updater: when the next release will be published, you will be prompted to update, without being asked to visit the download page and update manually. This has been a feature asked for a long time by many of you. Although AdwCleaner update adoption rate has always been very fast (most of you get the new versio
  18. AdwCleaner is available! After this summer break, it's time to deliver a important version of AdwCleaner - it brings several new features and major improvements. The usability is at the core of this new release: while the left sidebar was disabled during critical processes in order to prevent potential issues, we've made it possible to use it at anytime. It means that while a scan is in progress, it's now possible to browse to the other parts of the program to see the quarantine, the settings, the exclusions, the logfiles... We've also changed the way progress is display
  19. AdwCleaner 7.2.2 is now available! It contains a major addition: a new contextual menu on the scan results is available with a right-click, and offers two features: - "Add to exclusions list": add the element or the family to the exclusions, - "See threat Definition": opens the Malwarebytes Threat Center to display details about the detected threat family. This feature was already available but was harder to use in previous versions. We hope that this new way will be more intuitive to use. On top of those new features, new languages variants are available: Traditional
  20. A hotfix for AdwCleaner 7.2.1 has just been published. It fixes two issues that a significant number of users were facing: a crash during pre-clean operations, a FP when some Google products were installed, For reference, AdwCleaner 7.2.1 contains numerous new features as described in the release announcement. As usual, you can download AdwCleaner 7.2.1-hotfix here. The next release (7.2.2) will be published in a few weeks from now.
  21. AdwCleaner 7.2.1 has been released! Despite the small version increment, this isn't just a maintenance release: it certainly contains fixes, but also major additions to previous versions. Here's an overview of the changes: Ability to save the Window's size across launches Using the new dedicated toggle in the settings menu, it's now possible to save the window size when AdwCleaner closes such as it's restored on the next use. It's disabled by default. Ability to launch AdwCleaner with a local settings file This has been requested for a long time and it's now available:
  22. AdwCleaner 7.2.0 is the first major release since the 7.1.0 release a few months ago (that you can refer on this forum announcement) which is why it took longer than usual to be released. This new version support the installation and setup of MB3 from within AdwCleaner directly: with two clicks, it downloads and setup MB3, which will be automatically enabled if you already have a license or put in free trial mode. As we've seen numerous users wanted to use a secondary and broader scanner after using AdwCleaner, this should help and ease this usage. This release also no longer d
  23. AdwCleaner 7.1.1 is the first intermediate release since the major 7.1.0 release a few weeks ago, that you can refer on this forum announcement. This new update provides several new features, beginning by the ability to stop killing specific processes that are added in the exclusion list. This will allow to not keep some programs running while AdwCleaner performs its cleaning. Another addition is the ability to disable telemetry using a new toggle in the settings. This is this telemetry that help us to see which families of infections are spreading so that we can further improve the
  24. Over the last seven years, AdwCleaner has grown to become one of the de facto standards for adware and PUP remediation. Thank you for helping us making that happen! With adware and PUPs becoming increasingly annoying and aggressive, we wanted to make sure you had a version of AdwCleaner that keeps up. Over the last few months, we've been working side-by-side with many of our users and, with their input, reviewed every aspect. Since day one, the core of what makes up AdwCleaner is being fast, efficient and easy to use. With these as our guiding principles, we set out to modernize the
  25. Hello, AdwCleaner has been released! This version brings a lot of improvements to the detections, including generic ones. We also backported some naming logic from the upcoming 7.1 - more about it very soon. As a reminder, you can read a short retrospective of what we've done in 2017 and what you can expect in 2018.
