i used  adwcleaner regularly.  today, i went to run it and got the familiar "outdated version" notification.  when i tried to run the new version, i got a popup saying "this app can't run on your PC".  WTF??

Re: adwcleaner won't run on windows 10 64-bit?

same here, exe cannot run, no symbol, not signed

p.s.: tried all going back to 7.0.20 beta 1, none of them can be executed. 7.0.10 last working version

I got that too, I noticed i always got wrong Chcksums from the author's site.

I tried with different browser to no avail, then tried and made it from Filehippo with right checksum.

Now running it, it told me it's an old version and I should download the newer one, though everything seems right as above and in "about" info

as emagi stated in the previous thread https://toolslib.net/forum/viewthread/12767-my-adwcleaner-has-problem/

the checksums are different when d/led from toolslib.net, found other d/l locations where the checksums are ok and latest version is working, but it still says outdated version... hummm, strange

thats what i get from d/ling here:

 file: adwcleaner_7.0.2.1.exe    CRC-32: 64926c3e    MD4: f4e58a80213d8691eb23da1596b79553    MD5: a1903fd074e3a7128f6937d1da4627d4    SHA-1: 1e98c2dae56ec69129b9d30725b03692a8996b8d

please enlighten me/us!

It was a human error (mine actually) after an update which led to this issue. It has been resolved since, everything is back to normal so you can download AdwCleaner again.

Sorry for the issue,

Hi, I came from a thread (https://toolslib.net/forum/viewthread/12767-my-adwcleaner-has-problem/?p=1#!messageId-13228) where one of the administrators had gave out another link to this thread here. As if this were to be the problem solver. But it only brings me from the problem that I'm having, where an error message pops up after attempting to clean ("*** Caught unhandled unknown exception, terminating.") on the latest build This thread is about fixing an error where people had the latest build, but Adwcleaner was prompting them to get the latest one and it wasn't running on Windows 10. I don't understand how this thread helped out the, "*** Caught unhandled unknown exception, terminating." problem I'm having. This thread doesn't seem to have anything to do with my problem. Plus the thread I came from is closed now. I ran it in admin mode and tried the earlier versions listed in the other thread.

I cant ran anything past version 7.0. I got the ''this app can't run on your PC" error.

Is it fixable? I use win 10 x64 LTSB 2016.



Re: adwcleaner won't run on windows 10 64-bit?


We're working on it. This issue will be fixed with the 7.1 release.

In the meantime, please try in safe mode.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
