AdwCleaner 7.1.1

Recommended Posts

  • Staff

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:
