Re: AdwCleaner 7.2.0 indicated version?

Hi, congratulations for this new 7.2.0. Impressive. (It works well on my old Vista too, despite the minimum system requirements: Great!!!). There is not an option - as in the past - to verify the latest build without reaching the official website? while the defs are automatically downloaded, ok.
