What happened to Adwcleaner?
« on: May 07, 2015, 04:52:06 PM »
Straight to the point, what happened to Adwcleaner and is there a program similar that i can use?

I've used Adwcleaner to help keep my and my sister PC clean ever since I was helped here in SpywareHammer a few years ago.

It is still around, http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/ , but I would recommend Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware before ADWCleaner for an everyday type of utility. https://www.malwarebytes.org/
