Another FREE program that I use to remove unwanted programs and malware is AdwCleaner. This is a must have tool; especially, if you are the one who has the tech toolbox that is used to help others. AdwCleaner is a program that searches for and deletes Adware, Toolbar’s, Potentially Unwanted Program’s (PUP), and browser Hijacker’s from your computer. It comes with a “scan” and “clean” mode. Typically, these unwanted programs, such as adware, PUP’s, Toolbars, and hijacker’s, are bundled in with other software that we install (from the web) on our computers. ALWAYS, during a software installation, pay attention to any other optional software that may (or could) install; and, ALWAYS, research the software you intend to install. Typically, in honest cases, you are given an option (via a check box) to keep bundled software from not installing.
