    AdwCleaner v7.0.2.1 Released

    It's a hotfix release for 7.0.2.0 to fix a bug discovered during the release process. It address a misbehavior of the updater while using AdwCleaner offline.
    Other than that, it contains several (good) bugfixes, improve the update experience and fix (most of) crashes.
    A lot of modules have been updated (DNS, files/folders, registry, heuristics..) to cover more detections. The database has also been updated bringing a lot of new PUP/Adware families to the list of supported elements.


    The final binary is also lighter by a few KB.

    Whats New
    Bugfixes

    • Fix update module when running offline

    Not too keen on the survey offered when downloading Adwcleaner from the free download button here. Offer of winning a free ipad to complete it won't convince me to do it either.
