Adware or malware is a common issue for many people, especially if you have to download software from the internet.

I've been using Malwarebyte so far. How does it compare with these software?

Yeah you know it! Malwarebyte is more an allinone suite of tools that constantly runs in the background scanning your processes and defending you against infections and hijack attempts when you browse online, install apps and open emails etc. I believe these apps only scan for and help you to remove any infections. Malwarebytes may use the same updated list of known malware scripts etc so they'd be the same on that level but they may use different scanning methods and heuristics of identifying known malware/spyware etc.

Malwarebyte is also a good choice to keep computer clean from viruses. But these tools are completely free and they are dedicated only in adware removal.

Thanks Pro good job. Some spyware is just nasty and will literally spy on everything you type and do online including banking details etc. There's also some nasty malware and most recently some particularly nasty ransomware doing the rounds too that force you to make a payment to recover your files usually with bitcoin or something. They can be hard to remove and recover your files after getting something like that. That's why you should back up back up back up! Or be ready to restore at any time.

Are these for any Windows version then for XP/7 and 10 I presume? Not that anyone should be running on XP still.

Back in the day I used to use Spywareblaster to prevent infections and takeovers and Spybot S&D to scan and remove them. And a standalone app called HiJackThis which can show you all the installed BHO's (Browser Hijacker Objects) and things installed so you can remove them. There was some site up that you can upload your scan file to as well and it will tell you which ones were good or bad or unknown based on community user votes. It's still up now actually at hijackthis.de

The thing is with these apps is you have to make sure you get the latest version and update them first as well so that it has all the latest heuristics and spyware detection updates otherwise if you've got a really really new spyware not yet on its list it wont see it to flag it.

But good stuff cheers!

By the way, these are both free to remove any found infections pro? They don't charge you to do that if they find anything? You have tried/tested them mate?

Both Adw cleaner and Bitdefender Adware Removal Tool are completely free, and they supports any version of windows.

I was trying to find one of the software/apps you mentioned and came across a site that claimed to offer what's called 'ransomware'. Very happy that I did not download as Google says that is a software program that blocks access to your computer until you pay the fee. Can't remember the name of the site or software, just happy that I did not download and use it. Still looking for that other software you mentioned in the post. How to remove adware from computer

Computer viruses can be annoying sometimes, they get in and get your files badly corrupted that you regret storing the in there.

Will download and install and see how effective it will be.

Thank you for this procoder!
I've been using CCleaner for my needs so far. Are these two you mentioned a better option? Do you recommend any of these more than the other and in case you do, which one would you recommend?

I haven't had any major problems lately, *knocking on wood*, but about three or four months back my whole computer went totally NUTS because of malware or some kind of virus.. Fortunately, I could save most of my important documents and stuff before I reinstalled windows.

I haven't had any problems since then, but I would like to protect myself from this in the future, in the best possible way I can.

Best Regards,
hitmeasap

I'm a huge fan of Ccleaner too, but haven't run it for awhile. At the moment, it keeps popping up helpful reminders to clean my drive of junk files so that I will save 2 GB of space. How to remove adware from computer

Haha yeah, I've been there too.. The funniest thing with all of that is that you're getting those messages a bunch of times each day and whenever I see that message I'm like.. "Maaaan, STOP IT!!" and then I'll just close the message instead of actually doing what it tells me to do... How to remove adware from computer

It's been awhile since I used CCleaner, I haven't used the adware remover on it. I should check out the new features of this software

Thanks for the tips. I am also using Ccleaner. And SpyHunter v4 is also a good option. It did a wonderful job on my PC by removing all the malwares and corrected the damaged registry.

You made a really good point, often a spyware will damage the registry in Windows and mess the whole thing up. Most times, you just have to reinstall. That's another reason it's so hard to get rid of spyware, as there is something installed in the registry that often does not get deleted on scans.

Thanks for the information. It is helpful to know more about ways to remove adware from your computer as it is something that all computer users need to be aware of and give importance to. We only seem to notice problems when they occur, and at that point the result is a lot of panicking. So with proper protection the scenario would be much better. I use CCleaner and I am quite satisfied with it. But i will keep Adwcleaner and Bitdefender in mind just in case.

Hi procoder thank for nice post. Adware or malware is now very common issue for internet user. I faced several times on my computer when I download some software from internet. And it is really harsh issue for me. I tried several free software but I could not protect though that was free software. And as Beverly Malwarebyte also excellent software to remove ?Adware or malware. And as you said Bitdefender Adware Removal Tool also good tools for anti ?Adware or malware. I used both software before but at this moment I do not sue anyone. And now I using 2 software one is Microsoft security essential and another I used K7 for my some computers.

Thanks by Ajlancer

This is a very good guide. A few months ago, I downloaded something and it came up with adware. I had Kaspersky Internet Security but it failed to remove the adware so I had to download Adw Cleaner to remove it. I wasn’t actually very happy about the fact that Kaspersky couldn’t remove the adware. The good thing is that it is very obvious when you have an adware and it is fairly easy to remove unlike viruses which isn’t always as obvious. I also recently got CCleaner but back then I didn’t have it so hopefully it can remove any adware I get in the future.

Basically I block advertisement sites via the hosts file, you can take a look at How to Block Ads with Hosts File. You may be wondering 'why are you talking about a method to block ads on a adware removal discussion'? It's quite simple, because you can block connections that distribute adware, malware, or basically any other type of ware, virus, or trojan.

It's very easy, and there is a list of those connections to block, and it's ever growing, so chances of you going to a site and then clicking on an ad or somehow if the website installs adware or trojans in the background it most likely wouldn't occur. The filters are strict, and I've had zero issues. You all may want to try this type of ad blocker, and then use an adblocker extension to remove advertisement elements from websites. Believe me, your internet speed will be faster too!

Gee, I didn’t know that someone can place an ad on your site without knowing it. What if your site is quite stagnant that you don’t attend to it for a week or 2 then the ad will be there without your explicit permission. This discussion is an awareness for webmasters to check once in a while their site for the presence of malwares and also to install software to prevent the attachment of malwares.
