  4. 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. The changelog for this version is available below: ## v7.3 [13/03/2019] ### New Features - Redesign Generic detections from scratch to allow more flexibility and FP-control, - Enhance Winlogon changes detection ### Changes - Definitions 2019.04.03.1 - Sort logfile output by family name and paths - Update HSTS policy for network connections - Improved debug logging ### Bugfixes - Make the uninstall process more robust - Empty exclusions are no longer valid - Update generic detections - Update OpenSSL As always, you can get AdwCleaner on the product page: https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner
  5. 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 AdwCleaner on the product page: https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner
  6. 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] ### New Features - Submit False Positives directly from the result scan contextual menu. ### Changes - Update Qt to 5.9.7 - Definitions 2018.11.14.1 ### Bugfixes - Fix Crash during Firefox scan - Do not display the update prompt on top of the EULA - Make quarantine more reliable - Update generic detections As always, you can get AdwCleaner on the product page: https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner/
  7. 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 version in a few minutes), we hope this change will help those who are choosing to keep using an old version to update and benefit from the latest improvements. The changelog for this version is available below: ## 7.2.4 [24/09/2018] ### New Features - Automatic updater: it's no longer needed to manually download a new version of AdwCleaner. ### Changes - Logs and Quarantine tables are now sorted by date, and not by text. ### Bugfixes - Fix a crash when the basic repairs are run without prior detections - New generic detections - Fix detection of vaccines - Fix the upgrade process for build increments - Update translations - Definitions 2018.09.21.1 As always, you can get AdwCleaner on the product page: https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner/
  8. 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 displayed and tightened our Windows integration: the taskbar will now be colored depending on the number of detections during an analysis. As a long awaited feature, the definitions status is now displayed in the logfile. Hence, `Cloud` or `Local` will be written to the header of the logfile, indicating if AdwCleaner used the very last definitions or the set that was bundled at the time of the last release. Last but not least on the UI side of things, we've updated Malwarebytes moto to "Imagine a world without malware. We do" as it strengthens our stance to fight even the most annoying threats. On top of those visible changes, a lot of internal work is being accomplished in order to make the engine more effective on the long term that will begin to be visible in AdwCleaner 7.3.0. Until then, the current version includes a new feature that will allow us to shrink the size of the definitions set, thus making the scan even faster. It will also allow us to prepare the ground for exciting new features in the coming months, but more about them soon! Please see below for the whole changelog: As usual, AdwCleaner 7.2.3 is available here: https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner/ 
  9. 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 Chinese in addition to the already supported Chinese Simplified, and English (UK) in addition to the English (US) which is already supported. This should display the correct date format for most users, and let US-based users alone to stick with their own format. We have also updated numerous detection, including generics ones, and ported the stability fixes from AdwCleaner 7.2.1 hotfix. The engine is now more powerful to detect malicious URLs and Startup elements. Please see below for the whole changelog: ## v7.2.2 [16/07/2018] ### New Features - Ability to add an element or a family to exclusions directly from the scan results contextual menu - Ability to open the Malwarebytes Threat center directly from the scan results contextual menu ### Changes - The UI is now available in en_UK in addition to en_US. - Support for Traditional Chinese in addition to Chinese Simplified - Improve URLs detection - Update HSTS policy expiration ### Bugfixes - Improve the removal of all AdwCleaner files when uninstalling - Update Generic detections - Fix DriverPack detection - Improve Startup detection module - Fix Crash when closing processes [7.2.1 hotfix] - Various UI improvements - Definitions 2018.07.12.1 As usual, AdwCleaner 7.2.2 is available here: https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner/
  10. 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.
  11. 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: If a settings file is present in the same directory than AdwCleaner executable, then it will be used instead of the settings file located at the system root directory. This is particularly made for technicians who like to use AdwCleaner from an USB drive with the same settings every time. Debug mode availability Using the dedicated toggle settings, it's possible to output a more verbose logfile for AdwCleaner operations. This may be requested by us in order to get a more detailed report of what happened before a crash or a misbehavior. MBES detection For business users with MBES agents deployed, AdwCleaner will no longer show any suggestion to install Malwarebytes 3 for a deeper analysis. Please tell us how much you like AdwCleaner A new question is displayed only once at the end of the scan or the cleaning process to ask you how much would you recommend AdwCleaner to your friends or colleagues. (0 meaning you wouldn't recommend using it at all whereas 10 means that you would very likely recommend it). This is very important for us to know how AdwCleaner is appreciated, so please reply honestly! Outside of those major features, numerous improvements have been added, from the core engine to detections, UI fixes and performances gain. The full changelog is available below for reference: ### New Features - Ability to save the current window size and restore it on the next launch - AdwCleaner will now use a settings file in the same folder than AdwCleaner.exe so that it can be shared accross network shares or USB keys, - Add a debug log output when activated from the settings - Please tell us how would you recommend AdwCleaner to others with the new window asking for your opinion - AdwCleaner is now aware when MBES client is present ### Changes - Keep checked state of quarantine elements between switched tabs - Improve DownloadProtect detections ### Bugfixes - Support translations for on/off in Settings - Generic detections fixes and updates - Memory leaks - Various UI issues - Database to 2018.06.19.1 Download AdwCleaner 7.2.1 here.
  12. 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 display promotion for Malwarebytes when one or more of our products is already installed. On the contrary, it now display a button to open it. In addition, the reports now list existing logfiles that have been created in previous instances of AdwCleaner. This was implemented in former AdwCleaner releases but removed since 7.1.0. It's now back. It helps to know when AdwCleaner have been run previously and if it found something. Finally, the settings screen now contains links (?) that open the related explanation for each of the supported settings. This should clarify what each setting is doing and if you need to turn on some of them. On the engine side, web browser handling is now more stable than before. This is only a first step, as more will land in the 7.2.1 that will be out in a few weeks: Firefox scan and remediation will be faster, more effective, and more stable. As usual, detections have been updated to follow the latest threats. Please see the whole changelog below: ### New Features - Ability to download & install Malwarebytes 3 with one click - List existing logfiles at the end of reports - Add Help icons in Settings that link to explanations ### Changes - Slightly update UI to follow Malwarebytes 3.5 look - Improve Firefox scan & clean modules - Improve Chrome scan & clean modules - Update translations - Update internal components - Definitions 2018.06.1.2 ### Bugfixes - Ability to open logfiles with double-click - Various UI improvements - Crash while scanning Firefox preferences - Fix false positives - Improve MyWebSearch and other Generics detections More information: Download webpage: https://malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner FAQ: https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/225289-announcing-adwcleaner-71/?do=findComment&comment=1230229 The next version is scheduled for the end of June, and will focus on engine improvements and UI finetuning.
  13. 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 engine and our backend system to make them more efficient - it's extremely helpful for us if you keep it on! Last but not least (and this is a feature that has been asked for a long time): it's now possible to navigate in the UI with the keyboard only. A mouse or touchpad is no longer required! This should also help screen readers and accessibility tools to use AdwCleaner (and wee are looking for testers on this part, any help would be much appreciate - please reach me by PM!). On top of those three main features, various UI improvements and detections changes have been included in this release. Please see the whole changelog below: # New Features - Exclusions now support processes - New setting to fully disable the telemetry - Support keyboard navigation with tabs # Changes - Add a "See logfile" button on scan results screen - Scan shortcuts, files and folders in more locations - Improve tasks detection - Definitions 2018.04.24.1 # Bugfixes - Various UI issues - Update translations - Fix false positives - Improve generics for drivers More information: Download webpage: https://malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner FAQ: https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/225289-announcing-adwcleaner-71/?do=findComment&comment=1230229
  14. 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 codebase and deliver the next generation of AdwCleaner. Today, we're ready to share our hard work with you. With AdwCleaner 7.1, you'll enjoy these benefits: Speed and Detection: catches more and is 3.5 times faster New UI: easier, faster and more accessible Settings: fine-tune your experience Let's now take a closer look at AdwCleaner 7.1 and each of the enhancements!

We've strengthened our detection to better handle browser add-ons (even while synchronized) as well as settings (homepages, search engines, etc). You'll notice our generic detections have been enhanced as well as threats located on the filesystem and in the registry. New UI: easier, faster and more accessible Within our fresh and modern UI, you can still start scanning with just a single click! In addition to starting your scan quickly, you can get to other important features within one click. Don't forget to check out your usage stats while on the dashboard. We support 26 languages as well as the application is fully scalable. It adds more support for screen readers which is an area we'll keep improving upon in future builds. And of course, if you're in need of proactive protection, we've added a one-click option to grab a free trial of Malwarebytes for Windows. Settings: fine-tune your experience You can now more easily get to your settings and dial them in as you see fit. We've added the ability to manage exclusions if you want to avoid removing certain elements. Resources: get help and level up your knowledge If you're looking to get some additional assistance or read up on the latest research from Malwarebytes, we've added a few great resources to get you connected with us. You'll be able to connect with our Lab, share samples, or even get some help in our community. Thanks again for making AdwCleaner one of your go-to-tools for eradicating adware and PUPs. We're really excited to share this with you and to hear your feedback. As always, give it a try and feel free to stop back and share your thoughts with us (here).
