About Malwarebytes AdwCleaner

Malwarebytes AdwCleaner is a free security tool that removes Adware, Foistware, Toolbars, Hijackers (spyware that changes your browser homepage) and PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs). You can use this tool to remove unwanted toolbars or third-party programs. Such 3rd party apps will usually come through software bundles (authors of particular free software agree to allow individual companies to "advertise" their crap often, during the setup process or later through annoying ads that act similar to pop-ups; when you open the application you can see ads running on your computer).
