Adware Removal Tool

Published May 2nd, 2014 at 12:01 PM EDT, modified June 2nd, 2015 at 1:16 PM EDT


The Adware Removal Tool has been removed.

This tool was discontinued some time ago and replaced with AdwareMedic. It detects adware more reliably, and detects many things that the Adware Removal Tool never did. If you have found and used a copy of the old Adware Removal Tool, be aware that it cannot be relied on at this point, and you probably still have adware components installed. It has been removed to prevent people from using it, and then believing that they have removed all adware when they probably have not.
