Anti-Malware Malwarebytes Free does its work, disinfects it, but sometimes it may not be able to remove some malware or advertisements. Fortunately, there are software programs that you can use if necessary, the known disinfection program or even replace.
SPYBOT – SEARCH & DESTROY
Spybot-Seek & Destroy is the first alternative we offer. The software has become very popular over the years. It is updated frequently enough to protect against threats of all kinds (adware, spyware, keyloggers and other unwanted software). The advantage of Spybot is that the interface has multiple levels of complexity, so even beginners can easily clean their machines.
Emsisoft Anti-Malware is not free, but you can use it for 30 days for free. This is undoubtedly a good solution if malware is still sitting on your system after a malware byte analysis.
This program is probably closest to the Malwarebytes free Anti-Malware program in terms of functionality and detection capabilities. It attacks everything: Ransomware, Trojans, Adware, Bots. The tool also integrates a real-time protection and behavior analysis system to optimize malware detection.
ADWcleaner is slightly less complete than Spybot-Search & destroy, but the software is very efficient. It scans critical areas of your computer to detect and remove potentially harmful software or adware. When ADWCleaner detects multiple programs, you must navigate through the program’s various tabs (services, folders, DLLs, shortcuts, tabs, and so on) to verify that it is an important file or service and delete it. As you understand, you need a minimum of experience in this area to avoid the risk of damage to your machine. AdwCleaner was bought by Malwarebytes but is still available in a stand-alone version.
JUNKWARE REMOVAL TOOL
It’s no coincidence that the Junkware Removal Tool was purchased from Malwarebytes, the publisher of anti-malware. All you have to do is search the self-help forums on the Internet to see that the software is a reference when it comes to removing unwanted programs. In particular, it attacks adware and toolbars that invade Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. We can say it fills some gaps in your favorite anti-malware program. Its user interface will put off some users, but it remains a very effective solution.
This anti-malware is one of the most important tools for keeping a USB stick when needed. Regularly updated and available in a portable version, it is able to detect the most insidious malware hidden in the corners of the system. RogueKiller also has an anti-rootkit system that can eliminate the effects of this malware and make it easier to remove.
ADWARE REMOVAL TOOL FROM TSA
The Adware Removal Tool is much easier than the programs presented above and, as the name implies, is an adware removal tool. It’s just for removing toolbars that are embedded in your favorite browsers (always the same): Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Chrome. In addition, a very easy-to-use solution was used.
BITDEFENDER ADWARE REMOVAL PROGRAM
Bitdefender Adware Removal Tool is a free tool developed by one of the best antivirus vendors. After installation, this utility will suggest that you perform a thorough analysis of your computer to identify and remove adware. Like most of the software presented here, the Bitdefender Adware Removal Tool attacks the actual source of the ads that literally ruin your online experience. The tool can also be used to delete keyloggers (software that records everything you enter on the keyboard, your passwords, codes …).
GOOD TO KNOW
These programs are mostly disinfection software, they do not prevent viruses from invading your computer. As the old saying goes, prevention is better than cure, in this case choosing a good antivirus software that blocks malware and adware in the upstream. However, antivirus software is also not omnipotent, and the applications featured in this article will prove useful in many cases.
