Advertisers are looking for all possible ways of passing their information, and the Internet gives them many avenues. For example, installing downloaded software can easily lead to adware whose removal can prove tricky. It is no longer unusual to find your home page or default search engine modified or even see a new toolbar after installing a program. Thankfully, Ultra Adware Killer gives you a simple but effective method of solving the problem.
Ultra Adware Killer is a portable program designed to scan computers for any traces of adware. The application's portability is one of its strong points, as it will not create any new entries in the registry. You can also save it on a flash drive and use it on more than one computer.
Using Ultra Adware Killer
The free adware remover comes in two different versions for 32-bit and 64-bit systems. Although you can use the 32-bit version on a 64-bit system, it will have some limitations, and it is advisable that you use the appropriate version for your computer.
We downloaded and saved the program on a flash memory stick to make it truly portable. When we launched it, it displayed a simple user interface with a greyish theme. On the left part of the user interface were prominently displayed buttons for scanning, cleaning and accessing menu.
Taking a large portion of the interface on the right side were tabs to display different areas the program scanned, including file objects, registry, services, tasks and shortcuts. Three other tables were for the popular browsers Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox respectively.
We simply pressed the 'Start scan' button to start the process, and we could press the same button to cancel the scan at any time. We did not have to repeat the process for individual users unless we wanted to, since the 'Scan all users' button allowed us to cover everybody at once. This is especially handy if there are many user accounts on one computer.
We double-clicked on listed items to open their locations to understand them better and decide whether to remove or keep them. The program allowed us to do this while scanning was still in progress to save time. When the scan was complete, we clicked the 'Cleanup' button to remove the checked items.
Ultra Adware Killer is a portable, lightweight and fast application for finding and removing troublesome adware on a computer. The program can create a restore point, which can come in handy if you remove something you should have kept....
