Re: when a finally update of this 7.0.8 vers..??

Look at:  Root folder\AdwCleaner\Logs\AdwCleaner[S00].txt  =  "Database: 2019-06-28.1 (Cloud)" ... so I dont see the problem as it updates the database ! program works fine. thank you


Re: Remove botton

If the remove button isn't working, then it's the right manner yes. AdwCleaner is still portable even if it creates some files inside C:\AdwCleaner.

Keep in mind tho that the folder can contain Quarantined files that you won't be able to retrieve after removal. So I would still recommend keeping the C:\AdwCleaner folder.


Re: Remove botton

Hi, I confirm: even the 7.3 build wont unistall via Remove bottom. So before updating to a newer build I remove manually the executable and the C:\ folder (with logs...). I hope that this is the right manner. thanks.

Re: AdwCleaner 7.1.1 false positive with Vulkan

Checked on my 3 other Nvidia GC PC's and didn't find the "C:\Windows\System32\Unknown" folder.

This folder has been installed on march.

Vulkan runtime libraries come from NVidia drivers. As they appear useless for me I uninstalled them on my 4 PC's.

Not sure now that it's not a malware...

Re: Remove botton

Hi, thanks. Unfortunately this option is still not working, even launching it from Downloads folder :(  https://postimg.cc/3dqxcpV2

Re: Remove botton


Can you try again, but this time launching AdwCleaner through the Downloads folder?

Note that even if AdwCleaner itself (the executable) is still present, the AdwCleaner folder (located at C:\AdwCleaner) should be removed when you click Uninstall.

About the notification by email, we've had some issues recently but it's now fixed.
