ADW Cleaner

Recommended Posts


ADWCleaner is just an on-demand scanner (no real-time protection) and targets mainly PUPs like adware and other junkware with a database that does target some items that Malwarebytes 3 doesn't detect so if you want to keep it around to scan with occasionally as a second opinion (a good idea, especially if you or anyone who uses the system tends to download and install a lot of 'free' software from the web that might include bundled items that you might not want on your PC) you are free to do so, but otherwise if you don't need it you can go ahead and delete it.  It doesn't run in the background so it isn't going to waste any resources while you're using your PC so if you find it handy you can keep it around but if you'd rather not keep it around you can remove it and Malwarebytes should keep you safe.

I hope that helps to clarify things a bit.  If there's anything else we might assist you with please don't hesitate to let us know.
