That's not really what AdwCleaner does. It gets rid of browser junk. Toolbars, PUPS, and stuff like that. It's a 2nd/3rd line of defense. It more works like adaware. And Malwarebytes bought them out a while back. It's not a program you install either.Late for the show! I wasn't even aware of JRT.
I will continue to use Malwarebytes Free, as my backup to defender. It has proved itself for me. Doesn't get rid of "junk", but that is not its intention. I use Ccleaner for that task.
I did misread it a bit, but they work against the same threats. They are meant to catch stuff Malwarebytes and your AV don't. Also more meant to run when you already suspect your PC is infected. Both have been around a long time, and neither work like CCleaner. Totally different tool.Sorry. Is that relevant to my post or a misquote?
Malwarebytes gets rid of pups (by choice) I have no idea what AdwCleaner is .
