AdwCleaner can now detect and remove preinstalled software

The latest version of AdwCleaner allows you to detect and remove pre-installed software from your system. The new functionality is available in AdwCleaner 7.4.0.

AdwClearner is a popular tool that removes toolbars, adware, and Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUP) from your PC. It helps you to improve the overall performance of your system.

Such programs are generally installed with free software. Many people don’t have any idea that they should go for a custom install in order to avoid the automatic installation of unwanted programs. AdwCleaner comes to the rescue in such situations.

Use this simple and efficient guide to remove bloatware from Windows 10 for good.

Delete pre-installed programs from your PC


So, what about the programs that come preinstalled on your PC?

There are many such tools and games that we don’t need at all. Still, they consume a significant amount of resources such as hard drive, CPU and memory on our computer.

You must have noticed that these unwanted programs often slow down your system.

Malwarebytes explains in a blog post.

Besides the potential for performance impacts, we simply feel that when you buy a device—whether that’s a laptop for school, work, or fun—you should have the right to choose which programs are installed. That right should also apply to the types of software that can show up preinstalled with a device, before you even had a say in the matter.

These programs are often difficult to remove and the uninstall attempts are often unsuccessful for the average user. Well, Malwarebytes has finally addressed this problem.

The latest AdwCleaner update can now detect preinstalled programs as well. You can now use AdwClearner to quarantine or uninstall such unwanted programs from your system.

The latest version of AdwCleaner also brings another exciting feature. If you think that you have accidentally removed a software, don’t worry. You can restore it now by heading towards the quarantine section in no time.

Keep in mind that you should be running AdwCleaner 7.4.0 to enjoy all these features.

You can download the software from the official Malwarebytes site.
