Editors' Review

AdCleaner effectively blocks annoying advertisements while you surf, though it doesn't provide automatic updates for adware removal. The program works as an add-on of sorts, kicking into action each time you launch Internet Explorer's browser. Convenient hot keys are also available to instantly enable/disable blocking and to access AdCleaner's tidy interface. Docked in the taskbar, AdCleaner blocked most ads during testing, including floating, pop-up, flash, and animated ads. It also kept a count of blocked ads and provides a list of the host sites. You'll then be able to manage the Web sites with permissible ads by placing them on a whitelist. We also scanned our computer and removed potential threats with the application's built-in adware and spyware remover, though we would have liked an update feature to stay on top of newer, craftier types of malware. The short seven-day trial period is a stingy one, but this app works well for those who hate annoying advertisements.

"It DOES work, but is useless."

Super fast and easy installation; only took 20 seconds (maybe less).


Is useless outside of Internet Explorer.
Doesn't block Adware, just Ads on websites.


Would be great if it was updated for new Operating Systems, and could be used outside of IE.

"It worked..."

It takes only seconds, does the job of getting rid of nuisance toolbars, gets rid of redirects like conduit, etc...


It's not something that can be located on the desktop like CCCleaner... but it is easy to set up as favorite and access readily from there...


I don't understand what people are talking about when they claim that it add nonsense... There is nothing to press accept run adwcleaner... There's no download to press, no thirdparty adware to subscribe to... Something tells me, that people are pressing the wrong download button...
