Picture this, anytime you use your computer, you get a bunch of pesky pop-up ads that won’t go away. You decide to run Malwarebytes to remove the junk on your computer. However, Malwarebytes was unable to fix the pop-ups. This is called Adware. Adware can sometimes get passed your computer’s antivirus, or malware removal tools. This is where AdwCleaner comes in handy.
AdwCleaner is a simple, portable application that requires no installation. It’s a free tool used specifically to target that pesky adware that slipped by your antivirus.
How to use AdwCleaner:
Download AdwCleaner to your desktop.
3. On the following screen, titled “Microsoft Outlook Setup”, make sure the “Yes” button is clicked.
4. On the next screen, enter your name, email address, and password in the respective fields. Click Next.
Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware software is a program you can use to remove harmful software such as spyware, adware, and trojan viruses from your computer.
Note: You must be logged in as an administrator to use Malwarebytes.
Download & Install Malwarebytes:
Malwarebytes offers a free version and a pro version. In this article, we will be using the free version of Malwarebytes.
Note: Malwarebytes automatically gives you a free trial of the Pro version, but do not worry, it will default to the free version when the trial expires.
Maintaining good system security can seem intimidating. Fortunately, following the few simple steps listed below can provide good security in very little time.
1.Use antivirus software and keep it up-to-date.
Check for new updates frequently. We recommend using Malwarebytes (link back to Malwarebytes article here) and Bitdefender Gravity Zone which is a part of our Guardian Security Bundle.
2.Keep Windows & Programs up-to-date.
Vulnerabilities in software are constantly being discovered, which put you at risk. It’s not just Windows Updates, but updates for all the software that you use. We recommend updating your computer at least once to twice a month.
