AdwCleaner Deleted one of my folders

Hi all. AdwCleaner deleted one of my files with pictures that took over hours to make and I already tried to restore the file by using the quarantine manager, but the manager isn't showing any files in it. However, going into the AdwCleaner, I can find the folder of quarantined items there. Can I just move that file back to my desktop since it's not showing in the quarantine manager? 

Here's t...

Re: ***caught unhandled unknown exception; terminating

When is it happening? During the clean process?

Yes! I use adwcleaner(not Malwarebytes). 

I see this message for 6 months. Version adwcleaner_7.0.8.0 What's happening? Does the company make everyone switch to a paid version? I use free of charge.

Re: ADW cleaner for WinXP


AdwCleaner v7 no longer supports Windows XP. You can try to use the previous major version (v6) by following this link:

Please note that it's 10 months old and is no longer updated.

Also, feel free to try out Malwarebytes 3.0 (it is compatible with XP):

Re: Cannot uninstall adwcleaner

This still leaves windows thinking it is installed and eventually leads to trouble in add/remove programs and leftover registry entries. What is needed in an uninstall/cleanup program from Malwarebytes.


Re: AdwCleaner has stopped working

Just ran it again this morning and it still fails.  I did not do a dump, but it looks like it stopped in the same area.

Since Malwarebytes handles AdwCleaner go here to get a reliable download

there are no PUP's related to this download.  Have a great day!
