AdwCleaner is a free anti-adware tool for Windows that will scan your computer and efficiently remove obnoxious programs that slow and impede your computer’s performance. Using innovative technology, it’s able to detect Adware (ads software), PUP/LPI (Potentially Unwanted Programs), Intrusive Toolbars, Hijacker (Hijack of the browser’s homepage) and other junkware. It also features an anti-adware host that will help prevent advertising software from installing on your machine.
