Junkware Removal Tool to be discontinued

Malwarebytes has chosen to discontinue Junkware Removal Tool (JRT) by announcing the end of maintenance as of October 26, 2017.

While this is not an easy decision to make, we have determined that focusing on the continued evolution of our other award-winning security products is in the best interests of both Malwarebytes and our customers.

Note: This has no effect on subscriptions or licenses for any other Malwarebytes product.


What this means to you

Malwarebytes will continue to provide service and support for JRT until End of Life (EOL) on April 26, 2018.

If you are using JRT, we recommend switching to Malwarebytes AdwCleaner version 7 or higher. It’s free and incorporates all major JRT functionalities.
