  1. 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
  2. Hello! We just released AdwCleaner 8.0.5. This is mostly a maintenance release, focused on modernization for dependencies: ## v8.0.5 [25/05/2020] ### Changes * Update Qt to 5.14.1 * Update OpenSSL to 1.1.1g * Update UPX to 3.96 * Update definitions to 2020.05.13.1 The next release will be focused on actual new (and exciting) features.

  3. Hello, We are pleased to release AdwCleaner 8.0.4!

  4. 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 release, but the full-coverage should be done by next release. This version also introduces a 3 months-free MB4 license key for new AdwCleaner users. You may see it at the end of the cleaning process. As usual, the changelog is available below: ## v8.0.2 [30/01/2020] ### New Features * Ability to scan Host files for Malicious Entries. * Enhanced URL scanning for Chrome and Firefox extensions. ### Changes * Integrated new marketing campaign to provide new AdwCleaner users with a 3 month Premium Malwarebytes 4 key. * Update definitions to 2020.01.24.1 ### Bugfixes * Fixed issue in windows restoration point getting listed correctly. * Major translation update. To download AdwCleaner 8.0.2, click here. We expect the next release to happen sometimes around the third week of February. Please share with us your feedback!
  5. 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 up to 8.0.1 are vulnerable to DLL hijacking. This has now been fixed. We are very grateful for the report, and we encourage everyone to report us any vulnerabilities in AdwCleaner. We will study them and depending on the severity, act accordingly. This is the last release of 2019. We hope to keep our newly found pace in 2020 to improve quality, speed, and detection rate! Detailled changelog: ## v8.0.1 [18/12/2019] ### New Features - Re-Implement Firefox module. It now properly supports detecting and removing extensions, startpage, searchengines, preferences... ### Changes - Hide debug output - Update telemetry internals. - Update definitions to 2019.12.17.1 ### Bugfixes - Fix a DLL Hijacking vulnerability in AdwCleaner 7.0+, reported by Günter Born. To download AdwCleaner 8.0.1, click here. Please share with us your feedback!
  6. 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 which is the latest version to date, and which provides major improvements for native integrations We introduced again a working Chrome scan and remediation module that allows AdwCleaner to scan and clean Chrome in a fully comprehensive manner. Related, we temporarily removed the support for Firefox scanning and cleaning and we will introduce a fully new module to provide a much better support in the version 8.0.1 early December. We have been fixing numerous bugs in the remediation and quarantine logic. This part is now much more robust that it was before. Although we have not officially supported Windows Vista or Windows XP for a few years now, we got reports of successful usage by various users on both Windows versions. We know for sure that AdwCleaner 8 and onward will no longer work on these platforms. A support page will be posted with a link to AdwCleaner 7.4.2 which is the last release to run on those versions. There is no changes to the UI or no new features as to speak. Most of the significant changes are happening under the hood, but that doesn't make them less critical and major to provide performances and stability again as we are aware it has been lagging for the past months. If everything goes well, we expect to release AdwCleaner 8th next Tuesday, and the 8.0.1 a few weeks later as we are now finally back on the "one release every 3 to 4 weeks schedule" to include your feedbacks more quickly (more on that shortly) and to overall improve AdwCleaner's quality. The expected changelog is as below: ## v8 [26/11/2019] ### Changes - Following the release of MB4, the in-app installer now installs Malwarebytes 4. - Always download the very latest Malwarebytes build - Update Qt to 5.13 branch - Upgrade the build toolchain to Visual Studio 2017 - Update OpenSSL - No longer force the generation of the debug logfile - Support again the very latest versions of the Chrome Browser and allow for proper remediation - Temporarily disable Firefox scanning and remediation - will be added back in the upcoming 8.0.1 release - Update translations - Update definitions to 2019.11.20.1 - Completely drop support for Windows XP and Vista. Refer to https://links.malwarebytes.com/support/adwcleaner_windows_compatibility ### Bugfixes - Crash when the UI is displayed in Arabic - Make the uninstallation process more robust and less likely to leave traces behind - Make the quarantine process more stable and less susceptible to corruption To download AdwCleaner 8 beta, click here. Please share with us your feedback!

  8. 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!

  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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/
  15. 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/
  16. AdwCleaner 7.2.3.1 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/ 
  17. 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/
