This tool is able to detect and remove most of the Adware from Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, system folders & files and from registry traces as well very easily.

What is Adware

Adware is an unwanted software program that is designed to make money for the creator in some way. It shows pop-up advertisements on your screen or it can redirect you to an alternative website, depending on how the program works.

It is commonly disguised within a legitimate program or web browser and once you click on it you activate it. The aim is to get you to click on it, download it or get exposure to a website it is associated with in order to increase revenue. There are also some pretty malicious adware programs out there that will corrupt your computer, tablet or phone if downloaded when promoted.

Sometimes the first thing you know about it is when you see either a bogus virus message that your computer is unsafe (yes we’ve all seen it) or you need to install this software to take care of the problem (don’t!) Or you will be redirected to a different site than the one you wanted.

Note:  Usually adware is not viruses but ads they show may contain malware or viruses. So it is advisable to install the Best antivirus software on your computer. There are many Free and Paid antiviruses options available in the market. So technically, adware is not a virus, they just fall under potentially unwanted programs. However, adware removal tools are specially designed to remove them.

  1. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added
    I get several emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Appreciate it!

    1. Yes, it is possible. Please let me know the email ID that you want to remove.

  2. used on 27.05.23 worked very well, tried Microsoft’s own Malicious Software yesterday.
    it found nothing. give it a shot.

    1. I’m so sorry for the inconvenience that you are facing. There was something wrong with the server for downloading. It’s been fixed now. Check it out now.

    Windows 10

    When running the TSA Adware Removal Tool is is requiring .NET Framework 3.5.
    While running it is asking to restart your computer, after that the same is happening again.

    In the past I have used your great tool with Windows 7

  4. What’s the difference between ADVANCED SCAN and normal scan? Please let me know.
    Best regards.

    1. Advanced-scan is for deep scanning and uninstalling suspicious apps more intelligently. We’re planning to migrate this feature into a normal scan in its next version.

  5. Congratulations on the developers. I really like this tool, but lately it hasn’t detected anything.

  6. Your product sucks! My internet connection has been slowed or interrupted by some malware. I cannot run your tool since it’s unable to download the definitions. You should have a version of the tool available which can be used right away and should not need internet to run. What is the folder path where the definitions get downloaded?

    1. I’m so sorry about the inconvenience. Yes, it is true that our tool could not run without an internet connection because it downloads all the definition database from our server. Thanks for your suggestion that our tool could run itself even without the Internet. We’ll consider it in the next version. In the meantime, we suggest some more tools that will work offline too:
      1. Zemana Removal Tool
      2. Adwcleaner

      1. your download button doesnt work cannot download it great program used it before but lost the exe hope you can fix the download problem

        1. I just checked and it is working fine at this point now. Might be possible that time server was not working properly.
