Web Companion is particularly designed for web browsers. It secures your browser’s settings against unauthorized changes and acts as a buffer between your browser and malicious sites. For a better, safer and lighter web experience.

Ad-Ware Web Companion compliments your antivirus software and browser’s protection against the latest and freshest malware and attacks - by flagging malware at the URL level before it even gets downloaded to your PC. The most common release version is 1.1.922.1860, accounting for over 98% of all current installations. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC.

That’s a rough introduction. Since you can easily get to know more about it, I’m going to directly teach you how to uninstall Web Companion instead of introducing more about its features.

Maintenance Tips - How to Defragment Your Hard Disk

During the long-term use, there would be fragmentary spaces on your hard drives after many times of installation/removal. But through disk defragment, more space would be available.

1. Click the Start button, type “Disk Defragmenter” in the search box, select it in the results to open the tool

2. Under “Current Status”, select the disk you want to defragment. Doing this one by one won’t cost you much time on each.

3. You can click “Analyze disk” to determine whether the disk needs to be defragmented. If an administrator password or confirmation is required, do what it asks.

You can check the its progress in the Last Run column when the analysis is finished. A percentage lower than 10% means you should defragment the disk.

4. Then you can click “Defragment disk” to proceed. Give an administrator password or confirmation if it’s necessary.

How long it is going to take depends on your computer’s configuration. Other tasks can still be conducted during the process.
