The purpose of the AdwCleaner utility is to find and remove annoying toolbars, all sorts of dubious plug-ins, extensions and browser add-ons, as well as various components with advertising content and hijacker utilities.

Description of AdwCleaner

Actually, the specialization of the utility is the detection and removal of adware embedded in web browsers. With AdwCleaner, it is very easy to remove any annoying adware and then enjoy your PC, including the World Wide Web. Note that removing annoying toolbars, browser plug-ins (which may have been installed without your consent), software that shows blatantly unnecessary advertising, and hijacker utilities that arbitrarily install startup pages of Internet reviewers is quite time consuming and often not feasible for a user not well versed in the various subtleties of software operation. For this, you will need AdwCleaner.

The application is quite small and easy to use: AdwCleaner does not need to be installed and can easily be launched, even from a USB flash drive. Once launched, the utility starts scanning for traces of unwanted components or their fragments that have not been deleted, clog your PC and need to be cleaned. When the scan finishes, the results are generated as a text file, allowing you to see what registry keys and files from your hard drive will be deleted before the next cleanup. In order to start the cleanup process you need to click on the "Clean" button, the cleanup will complete only after restarting the computer.

Note one critical peculiarity of AdwCleaner: in order for the utility to work correctly, all other applications must be inactive while it is running. By the way, after cleaning, reboot cannot be delayed.
