AdGuard for Windows 7.9


Quality Assurance
Now we know that we can create suspense no worse than Hitchcock: since the last release, we’ve presented three versions of the app (one beta version and two release candidates). But enough is enough! Meet AdGuard 7.9 for Windows, the release we've all been waiting for. Let's list the major innovations and benefits of this version so you can savor them.

Let's start with the fact that we have worked hard on improving the performance of the application as well as its user interface. Now you'll enjoy interacting with AdGuard for Windows even more. We've also improved the advanced DNS settings by adding a bootstrap option. Don't want to use the system DNS resolver as a bootstrap? You don't have to! Now you can specify IP addresses of the DNS servers that are used to determine the address of the encrypted DNS servers.

What else? We fixed tons of bugs of different severity, including the problem with auto-activation of language filters. As a result, AdGuard's stability is improved now. Of course we couldn't avoid updating CoreLibs and DNSLibs. That's all, folks! We hope you’ll enjoy the new version of AdGuard for Windows.
