Recommended Posts

  • Staff

AdwCleaner is available!

It's a hotfix release for to fix a bug discovered during the release process. It address a misbehavior of the updater while using AdwCleaner offline.

Other than that, it contains several (good) bugfixes, improve the update experience and fix (most of) crashes.

A lot of modules have been updated (DNS, files/folders, registry, heuristics..) to cover more detections. The database has also been updated bringing a lot of new PUP/Adware families to the list of supported elements.

The final binary is also lighter by a few KB.

Last but not least, a survey is live on the download webpage. It's not displayed for everyone but it should appear for most of you. It contains a few questions (it's not mandatory to answer all of them but it's definitively better) regarding your usage of AdwCleaner. The answers we received so far are very useful and really help for the 7.x.0.0 development and beyond, so please contribute! :) If you have any questions, feel free to contact us (mail, PM on the forum...).
