Junkware Removal Tool Review

Fernando Ortega
A tool and command line utility which removes some of the most common malware
A review of Junkware Removal Tool by Fernando Ortega

Junkware Removal Tool is a handy little application which you can run to remove many of the currently browser hijacks on the market. The main source of these types of malware products are distributed by unscrupulous download portals; They often change your browser settings such as homepage and search provider.

JRT doesn't have a fancy interface or much to do with graphics, but runs in a command line window to remove a list of different hijacks and adware.

With Junkware Removal Tool, a scan typically takes around 4-5 minutes depending on your system setup. Our PC with a solid state drive took considerably less time. After you've run JRT, you'll see a text file which contains a list of actions the program took. At the moment, Junkware Removal Tool doesn't contain a list of exclusions so if you actually have a hijack that you'd like to keep installed, you're going to have to get yourself infected again.

The basic user interface of this program offers a run-and-forget approach because it lacks settings. This is viewed as a good thing in most cases.

Overall, if you notice weird stuff happening with your Internet browser, then run JRT and watch it remove some of the junk many sites force users to install.

Junkware Removal Tool is software which can free up disk space.
