With the Chrome Cleanup Tool, you can eradicate any add-ons or malware that has hijacked your web browser. This piece of software was originally a standalone app, but it is now an integrated add-on that allows you to restore your web browser back to its original settings. In addition to removing rootkits and other forms of malware, it can also change any settings that might be slowing your system down. If you have been struggling with frequent crashes or a laggy browser, then it might be time to take a closer look at the Chrome Cleanup Tool.

Chrome is one of the most versatile browsers on the market, and that is why it is downloaded millions of times every single year. Unfortunately, that versatility has also left some glaring holes in its security. When you download an app or add-on, you could inadvertently change all of your settings. After installing new software, you may notice issues such as unusual pop-ups or a new homepage. Most of those issues are minor inconveniences, but you may have malware that is stealing your data as well.

The primary goal of the Chrome Cleanup Tool is to quickly and safely restore your browser back to the correct settings. After clicking on this program’s icon, the entire Chrome folder is scanned for any unusual files or pieces of software. If any suspicious files are found, then you will be able to choose what to do with them. All of the unwanted files that are found can be quarantined or permanently deleted from your computer. Files that you recognize can be left in place.

Unfortunately, malware will quickly make permanent changes to your browser, and that means you must reset the software entirely. Instead of completely deleting Chrome from your system before reinstalling it, you can use the Chrome Cleanup Tool to reset all settings and delete existing files. All of your cookies and favorites will be deleted until you sign in to your account once again, but any issues that you were experiencing should be taken care of.

Very few things are as frustrating as dealing with a glitchy or slow web browser, and that is one of the reasons why so many people have downloaded the Chrome Cleanup Tool. This software is very easy to use, and it will help you avoid a wide variety of problems if you ever download malware or accidentally change your settings. When this program isn’t being used, you can turn it off entirely so that it doesn’t use up system resources.

Pros:

  • Simple to download and use
  • Scans can be completed in a matter of moments
  • Lightweight program that uses minimal resources

Cons:

  • Doesn’t remove all malware
  • Can’t be used with other browsers
  • Sometimes flags legitimate files and add-ons
