Bitdefender has announced the availability of Bitdefender Adware Removal Tool for PC, the first public beta of its portable program to detect and remove unwanted software.

The Removal Tool arrives as a single 41.8MB executable file. There are no supporting files, and it doesn’t download anything else: just run it and go.

Program usage is just as straightforward. There’s no choosing a scan type, or location, no advanced settings to consider: agree to the user licence, click “Get Started”, and that’s it.

There isn’t much power or configurability here, and presumably that’s the point. Bitdefender Adware Removal Tool is aiming to be a program that absolutely anyone can use to check and clean up their system, and it does that very well.

Product still in BETA.

Mod Edit: Added source.

Bitdefender Adware Removal Tool - Beta

page:http://labs.bitdefender.com/projects/adware-remover/adware-remover/

Bitdefender Adware Removal Tool for PC is a free app that identifies and removes unwanted apps such as adware, malicious hijacker programs, annoying toolbars and other browser add-ons. Keep the apps you like, get rid of the programs that bug you.

This tool will only erase those apps that you wish to be removed. It scans your computer for adware, and produces a list of apps marked for removal.

This program is relatively large at 41.8MB, but it's also portable, and ready for immediate use. Launch it, accept the user agreement, click get started, and it'll immediately begin to scan your system for problem.

Note:
This app is portable, no install or uninstall needed.

I ran it on both my Windows 7 and Win 8.1 machines, No problems and nothing found on either although I didn't expect it to as I keep a clean ship. :D It will be interesting to see results when it gets tested by reliable sources.

For a portable, it's 41MB in size.

You must accept the EULA before getting started.

Bitdefender Adware Removal Tool out of beta
Bitdefender has announced the final release of Bitdefender Adware Removal Tool, its free portable malware hunter.

As with the beta, the finished program is basic in the extreme. There’s no real-time protection, no Explorer integration, no choice about what to examine: just a single Scan button which checks your entire system.

Removal is a little more flexible. Anything dubious is listed, and you can choose what you keep, and what must go.


The interface is simple, or extremely basic, depending on your point of view

The insistence on scanning your full system drives means the program can take a while. Checking 459GB of files on our test system took around five minutes.

One notable plus seems to be the lack of false positives, at least in our initial testing. Our PC was packed with brand new, low-level and little-known software but the Removal Tool ignored all that, instead zooming in on the real threats.

The program is also portable, so convenient to use, and most unlikely to conflict with other security software.

Bitdefender Adware Removal Tool still isn’t the most essential of tools, but its core engine is a good one, and we’re going to keep a copy on hand for emergency use.

Different of the other (bad and ugly) Adware Removal Tol by techsupportall.com : http://malwaretips.com/threads/new-adware-removal-tool.32462/#post-271453

EDIT:
- but are Bitdefender trustworthy ?.. I'm not very sure.
I pefer the reliable values like RogueKiller by Tigzy, AdwCleaner by Xplode .. look on their corresponding topics on MT here.

Look here: Internet problem after installing Bitdefender : http://malwaretips.com/threads/internet-problem-after-installing-bitdefender.36481/

BitDefender Adware Removal Tool is sort of ADWARE. Thin line is between legal ones and those that are not. And i't not so portable as people imagine..."leave no trace". Even EEK leave two drivers after it runs. You must remove them manually after.
