Junkware Removal Tool to be discontinued

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Malwarebytes has chosen to discontinue Junkware Removal Tool (JRT) by announcing the end of maintenance as of October 26, 2017.

While this is not an easy decision to make, we have determined that focusing on the continued evolution of our other award-winning security products is in the best interests of both Malwarebytes and our customers.

We will continue to provide service and support for JRT until End of Life on April 26, 2018.

If you are using JRT, we recommend switching to Malwarebytes AdwCleaner version 7 or higher. These versions are free and incorporate all of JRT functionalities, with exception of minor temp file cleaning. If you feel Malwarebytes AdwCleaner is missing something else, please let us know here: https://forums.malwarebytes.com/forum/187-malwarebytes-adwcleaner/ 

Head here for the full lifecycle matrix: https://www.malwarebytes.com/support/lifecycle/?view=junkwareremovaltool#lifecycle-matrices

Note: This has no effect on subscriptions or licenses for any other Malwarebytes product.

We hope that Junkware Removal Tool has been of value to you, and we thank you for your understanding and support!

Thank you,

The Malwarebytes team
