ADWCleaner was updated in 2019 to version 8, it works on every Windows 10, Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 PC, no longer on XP and Vista.
Compared to the previous version, ADWCleaner 8 improves its graphical interface making it even simpler, with a scan button and a button to access the log files. The cleanup, uninstallation and donation options have been removed from the main interface. After the scan, the button appears to clean Windows of all detected adware and spyware . Furthermore, it is also able to detect the so-called PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) software, including the pre-installed programs when buying a new PC.

Once opened, just press the Scan button to scan the system and see if there are things to remove. The adware scan is very fast and, at the end, shows the found elements are divided into various categories depending on whether they are services, folders, registry keys, scheduled operations, extensions of Chrome or Firefox.

Each removed item is moved to a quarantine list which can be accessed by pressing the tools button at the top. If a file you needed was removed by mistake (which is very rare), you can then restore it.
In addition to the normal scan, the new AdwCleaner 8 version also hides a series of Windows system repair tools under the Options menu to restore some network settings that may have been modified by adware or malware. These are accessible from the Tools menu, where they are selected one by one. The tools reset the proxy, Winsock settings, firewall settings, BITS queue, IE and Chrome policies, IPSec and TCP / IP settings. Basically, if the internet connection shows computer-dependent anomalies, these tools return the connection to its original functioning state. Once the tools have been selected, to run them, press the cleaning button.
