  • Aggressive default removal: This program is pretty aggressive in terms of what it removes. That’s often a good thing, but it can also mean that some items you wanted or needed are purged as well from time to time. In order to avoid this, you can go through individual items and deselect anything you want to keep before running the cleaning feature. But that can get a little tedious and also significantly increases the amount of time it takes to complete the process.

Close

Bottom Line:

AdwCleaner offers a lot of nice features in an accessible, convenient, and free package. It’s a good option for users of all experience levels, although the fact that it aggressively removes programs may prove a challenge for real novice users.
