After running AdwCleaner windows 10 does not start up. I see the windows logo at start/restart but it does not get to the logon screen but starts flashing.
I have now the same situation with two laptops. I am very certain that it is due to AdwCleaner because the issue appeared on the second laptop immediately after running AdwCleaner. I think it is due to the removal of a map "Windows/sources" but I am not a specialist.
On my first laptop I have only a problem when I want to do a restart. The second laptop is completely ruined as well as a normal start as a restart does not work. On this second laptop I even have no access to "advanced repair options" after a hard reboot.
I was a long term user of AdwCleaner but from now on nomore!!!!
