About This File
AdwCleaner is a free program that looks for and deletes Adware, Toolbars, PUPs, etc. viruses. Using AdwCleaner you can easily remove many of these types of viruses for a better user experience on your computer and while browsing the web.
In December 2016, Malwarebytes purchased AdwCleaner, at the moment the program is still free and remains a standalone product. It is not known exactly when Malwarebytes will integrate AdwCleaner into their product, but it remains to be seen.
