Getting rid of annoying toolbars, browser add-ons installed with or without one's consent as well as eradicating adware or hijackers from a system can be a daunting job, especially if the appropriate tools are not at hand. To help users clean their PCs of such nuisances, utilities like AdwCleaner have been created. This particular application is quite lightweight and also a breeze to use. The program doesn't need installation and can be deployed from any storage device, most suitable for portable usage. Plus, it doesn't leave any traces in the Windows registry. As soon as it is started, AdwCleaner immediately finds all traces of unwanted components or remnants of former installations that should be cleaned. The results are presented in a text document so you can view in detail which files and registry keys have been detected and proposed for deletion. Pressing the 'Delete' button will start the removal process which will end with a system restart.
