Windows 10 pro



Re: Version AdwCleander


Can you make sure Windows is up to date an try again?


Re: Version AdwCleander



I've tried several times to download. Windows defender says it has a trojan. If I install the previous version has no problem.


My Windows is up to date.


Re: Version AdwCleander

Is Windows Defender up to date?

Please take a look at the "Trigger an update" section, here:


Re: Version AdwCleander

I downloaded it. But the computer shows a message  saying it can not run the application. Ask to consult the  software vendor. Another point is that the program icon  does not appear (image of an insect). Displays a standard Windows software icon.

Re: Version AdwCleander

In the last update of Windows 10, they upgraded Windows defender. Especially the Exploit protection. Many people do the AdwCleaner dowload but are unable to run the program.

See the icon after after the download

Re: Version AdwCleander


When you say "many people do the AdwCleaner download but are unable to run the program", can you share some other cases? That'd be helpful.

Also, can you try downloading AdwCleaner using another web browser (Chrome, Firefox, ..)?


Re: Version AdwCleander

I activated a function on my Chrome through the link - chrome://flags/  called - parallel-download.  

This is what affected the AdwCleaner download.

The funny thing is that this only affected your program. 


All employees of the company where I work have the same problem because they have enabled this function in their browsers. That's why I wrote "many people" earlier.

I'm sorry for the mistake

Thanks a lot

Re: Version AdwCleander

Good catch.

I'm able to reproduce the issue and we even know its cause. I'll let you know as soon as the issue is fixed (probably next week).
