A free adware removal program which effectively removes PUPs

A review of AdwCleaner by Sven Sørensen

There comes a time when freeware is no longer really freeware, but actually just an easy way to get unsuspecting users to install toolbars and all that kind of junk.

Thankfully, there are still some honest people out there creating software and this is one which fights back.

AdwCleaner helps users remove many of the common PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) from their Windows computers.

With AdwCleaner, you've got yourself a mean and clean program which searches for and removes nasty software you probably rather wouldn't want to have installed.

The program is very effective at getting rid of advertisements and reverses some of the changes many malware applications made such as browser modifications.

All around, AdwCleaner is certainly recommended if you have accidentally installed some junk on your system.

AdwCleaner features and highlights:
  • Removes adware
  • Removes traces of PUPs
  • Deletes toolbars
  • Removes various browser hijacks

AdwCleaner is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from anti spyware software without restrictions. AdwCleaner 3.023 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
