    "Adwcleaner: Great, trusted tool!"

    October 14, 2013  |   By tomysshadow


    This thing removed programs I didn't even know I had! They came with CocoonSoft's Quick Media Converter. It was mostly by Brothersoft or Conduit. It also helped me completely obliterate Babylon Toolbar - goodbye!


    It uninstalled Freecorder - which I know for a matter of fact isn't malware. Even though it is a toolbar, it actually WORKS, so it's unfortunate that it is removed. However, it is a free program, so an easy install to fix.


    Uninstall via the Control Panel before using this program and you're all packed.

    PLEASE! I know this program does NOT contain any malware! The only malware you are getting is from CNET's installer! Just click "Direct Download Link" under the green button. Seriously. You shouldn't need to use CNET's installer, ever.
