"Deletes things that don't show up in the scan details"

by: Jack Alexander

Malwarebytes AdwCleaner 7.0.1.0

2017-08-01

Pros:

None

Cons:

This was an excellent program before Malwarebytes took over the project. Malwarebytes has a problem with Auslogics Defrag Pro and Free and will, without informing you, delete these excellent defragmentation programs and won't inform you of the scan results about it. (I've saved myself a copy of the original program.

Other Thoughts:

None

"Pretty good utility!"

by: John

AdwCleaner 4.101

2014-11-10

Pros:

Quick & easy

Cons:

Can't resize/full-screen window

Other Thoughts:

I noticed the previous reviewer stated this program removed some shortcuts without asking.

I would like to comment on that.
I too, had this happen, & it was Internet Explorer, Firefox, & Chrome shortcuts it wanted to delete.

At first, I did not let it delete, but I checked & the shortcuts were modified with extensions to the end of the url, so that it would visit pages they were not supposed to.

I wonder if the prior reviewer also had an infected shortcut, but did not realize it?

In my case, after looking the shortcuts over on the machine I was cleaning, I decided it is best to just let it remove them after all, & recreate new shortcuts that did not redirect to untrusted webpages or connections.

This utility is great at resetting registry keys that get changed by malware, as well as sniffing out adware/toolbars/unwanted pests/etc.

I would rate this a must have.

Fast, & for the most part, seems accurate.

AdwCleaner 3.214

2014-07-04

Pros:

It works!

Cons:

none

Other Thoughts:

considering I pay for a program to do this, and it asked if I wanted to install adwCleaner, and I regularly look myself in -remove programs-, adwCleaner found pages of unwanted addons! I could not find anything that I wanted to keep either! I may be wrong, but I feel the computer is reacting faster as well. My modem has almost stopped flashing as well. Amazing program
