We are pleased to announce that AdwCleaner 8.0.2 is now released!

This release brings exciting new features, as well as important bug fixes. The new capability to put under a spotlight is the reintroduction of the Hosts file scanner in order to detect any malicious redirections. Theses new detections are quarantined and each deleted line can be restored individually later on using the Quarantine.

We also took a major stab at refining the translations compared to the previous releases, as some of these were starting to age - we covered the most used languages for this release, but the full-coverage should be done by next release.

This version also introduces a 3 months-free MB4 license key for new AdwCleaner users. You may see it at the end of the cleaning process.

As usual, the changelog is available below:

## v8.0.2 [30/01/2020]
