AdwCleaner 5.0 ships with new engine, Windows repair tools


Popular adware hunter AdwCleaner has hit version 5 with the addition of a new and improved generic detections engine.

The program can optionally reset a range of Windows settings -- proxies, winsock, TCP/IP, firewall, IPsec, the BITS queue -- as well as IE and Chrome policies.

AdwCleaner's Quarantine Manager is fully integrated into the program for easier access.

There's a new Debug mode available from the Options menu, and the program is now officially compatible with Windows 10.

The new release did a good job of cleaning up a test PC for us, but beware, it can be aggressive, and might highlight something you want to keep. Check the program’s recommendations carefully before you delete anything.

AdwCleaner 5.0 is available now for Windows XP and later.
