Bitdefender has announced that its stand-alone Bitdefender Adware Removal Tool has been updated to remove the Superfish root certificate, while also “while also disinfecting drivers or executables that have been affected by the malware”.
It’s not even a week since news broke that the adware had been bundled on Lenovo systems for some time, and already bigger scares are appearing, but if you’ve not yet checked your computer for problems then the new build does at least make it very easy.
Bitdefender Adware Removal Tool doesn’t require installation, registration, or even unzipping: just download and run it.
There are no configuration options, no settings to consider. All you have to do is wait for the scan to complete (that’s five minutes or so on our test PC). Any threats will be listed, check the boxes for whatever you’d like to eliminate, and click “Remove” to dispatch them forever.
The Superfish-ready Bitdefender Adware Removal Tool is available now.
