X-Cleaner Micro Edition - now and then, a quick scan really helps

review from ClifNotes, Jan 2007, permalink _ Adware & Spyware Removal



Update Apr 2009: X-Cleaner is no longer available and older versions of it will not launch 


I just like tiny applications that are contained in a single executable file. I like them even more when they are good at what they do. I really like X-Cleaner Micro.


It's a simple download, then you are off and scanning. The website offers an ActiveX scan running out of Internet Explorer, but since I use Firefox, which lacks ActiveX, I don't use it. I did find that just under the link to the ActiveX program was a link to this single executable file.


It's not hidden, it's just not obvious.



Wrong! Never open or run an application from a web browser link. Always download it so your built in intrusion detection software can scan it.

This online scanner was developed by FaceTime Security Labs, makers of the X-Cleaner Spyware Remover.
