Have you noticed that your web browser is becoming slow or that intrusive ads are flooding your screen ? These symptoms are often caused by unwanted software. With ZHPCleaner, you can easily clean your browser from these nuisances. In this article, I will explain how to clean your web browser.

What is ZHPCleaner ?

ZHPCleaner is a cleaning utility designed to detect and remove potentially unwanted programs (PUPs), adware, toolbars, and other malicious or unwanted software that may be installed on your computer:

  • Adware: Intrusive ads and browser redirects.
  • Unwanted toolbars: Unwanted search bars or other browser extensions.
  • Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs): Programs that often install alongside other software without the user’s explicit consent.
  • Browser hijackers: Software that changes browser settings without authorization.
  • Malicious registry entries: Registry keys added by unwanted software.
  • Unwanted files and folders: Files left by malware or incomplete uninstalls.

Disable Account Synchronization

Important : If your browser is synchronized with a Google account (for Chrome) or a Microsoft account (for Edge), it is essential to disable this synchronization before cleaning. Synchronization saves your settings, extensions, and preferences in the cloud, and they may be automatically reinstalled after cleaning.
