AdwCleaner 2022 full offline installer setup for PC 32bit/64bit
Is your PC acting up? It could be riddled with adware, potentially unwanted programs (PUPs), or a browser hijacker. Malwarebytes AdwCleaner removes obnoxious programs that slow and impedes your computer’s performance.
The types of programs that the software targets are typically bundled with free programs that you download from the web. In many cases when you download and install a program, the install will state that these programs will be installed along with the program you downloaded. Unless you perform a Custom install, these unwanted programs will automatically be installed on your computer leaving you with extra browser toolbars, adware, and other unwanted programs. AdwCleaner is designed to search for and remove these types of programs. The program frees your computer from unwanted programs and malware.
What is adware
Adware is software that shows you unwanted ads. It could be also a type of free software supported by advertisements that show up in pop-up windows or on a toolbar on your computer or web browser. Most adware is annoying but safe. But some are used to gather your personal information, track the websites you visit, or even record your keystrokes.
Where adware comes from
Just like spyware, adware is most often built into free software, but can also be installed on your browser or operating system through a security hole.
How to recognize adware
Your device is probably infected with adware if you start seeing ads popping up in applications where you hadn't seen them before. Pop-ups can also show up on your computer's desktop even when you're not browsing the Internet. Also, your browser's homepage may have been changed. You can use an adware scanner (which is included in all adware removal tools) to check if your device is infected.
How to prevent adware
Use an antivirus with an adware cleaner. Ensure that your browser, operating system, and software have the latest updates and security patches. Turn on a firewall when using the Internet. Download this freeware for Windows PC Now!
Note: The program doesn't need installation, It is a portable version program.
