The Chrome Cleanup Tool is a program written by Google that will scan a computer for programs that cause problems in Google Chrome. The targeted applications are potentially unwanted programs, malware, badware, and adware extensions that cause advertisements or other wanted actions to appear in Chrome.
Using the Chrome Cleanup Tool is very easy. Simply download it, run it, and let it scan your computer for unwanted programs. If it detects any unwanted programs, it will alert you and wait for you to remove them. Once the programs are removed, it will reset Google back to its default settings.
It is important to note that after the Chrome Cleanup Tool has finished running and you close the program, it will automatically delete itself. So do not be surprised if you run it once, but are unable to find it again when you attempt to run it at a later date.
The known programs removed by the Chrome Cleanup Tool are:
- Price Meter
- Mail.ru Sputnik/Guard
- Conduit Toolbars, Community Alerts & ValueApps
- Shopper Pro
- Consumer Input
- Content Defender
- Movie Dea
