    MALWAREBYTES ADWCLEANER v7.4 Pre Installed Lenovo Software Question

    I have used MALWAREBYTES ADWCLEANER probably since it was first introduced. When I ran it today a new version of the software was available (7.4) which I downloaded. No PUPS were found however this new version for the first time flagged Lenovo preinstalled software and asked whether or not I wanted to quarantine it. I don't necessarily want to quarantine this software however I am curious if anyone else uses MALWAREBYTES ADWCLEANER regularly with a Lenovo computer and have found the same results.

    I've "stopped" all of these Lenovo programs from running in Services. I also made sure they weren't running in my start-up.

    ADWcleaner now targets MFG Bloatware. (unnessary MFG software that ships with OEM computers).
    We are pleased to share the public version of AdwCleaner 7.4 after one year of work*. This is a major version, as it now detects Preinstalled applications too!
    We encourage you to take a look at the announcement blogpost to learn more about why we are now introducing this new detection category:,-your-choice:-adwcleaner-now-detects-preinstalled-software/
