Because of the several security flaws, people with good knowledge of programming and security target and try to exploit Windows operating systems users by writing malware and adware programs. AdWare target internet users. They install a browser extension programmed to display plenty of advertisements each time the user opens a website. They also change browser settings so as to prevent users from removing the extension. AdWare removal tools detect and remove unwanted extensions.
Malwares are far more dangerous than AdWare. They steal bank account information, track user activity, make changes to Windows PC, and more.
One of the best free methods to keep PC safe is by enabling Windows Defender, Firewall service and using a good malware removal software. Malwarebytes is a great free malware remover, but it doesn’t detect and remove AdWares. AdwCleaner works like a charm, but it keeps malware running on the system.
A new program which promises to remove both malware and adware is ZHPCceaner.
