Issues with AdwCleaner

Recommended Posts

OK, I found it. That doesn't mean it makes sense...

The AdwCleaner folder is, indeed, on the C drive. There's no executable in it.

I originally sent the executable from my laptop to a folder called "Rob's Stuff" on my wife's D drive, which is a WD 4TB external drive. That's where it disappeared from earlier today. Tonight, I found it in the "Downloads" folder, on the F drive. (C and F are built in. C is an SSD.) Windows must have put it there, because I did not. The time signature is earlier today, so I did not dump it there some other time and forget about it.

Want more? I copied the executable to the AdwCleaner folder and ran it. Then the icon changed to a Windows "generic" program icon. When I tried to launch it a second time, Windows notified me that the program "could not run on this PC". I can run it from its location in the Downloads folder, so there it will stay.


Bizarro World.
