How to run Adwcleaner from Windows 10 PE


Recommended Posts

Great.  I think being able to run in the PE environment would be a great plus for ADWCleaner.  In addition to running in a Win PE, the option of choosing which disk to scan would be very important.  Just scanning the booted X: drive would do no good.  You will need to be able to specify the PCs real OS boot disk.

Thanks for the follow up.  Here is hoping version 7.1 comes out soon.  And please let me know. Regards, Bruce

To launch it when this is ready, you would  cd to the drive and enter the path to AdwCleaner.exe.  For example, if you have AdwCleaner on a flash drive:

At the X:> prompt, type in the word Notepad and press enter.

When Notepad opens, click File > Open and select 'Computer' so you can verify which drive letter was given to your flash drive. Jot that drive letter down, then type in that path to launch AdwCleaner.  If you have AdwCleaner on the Desktop or Downloads folder, then you would need to enter that full path (which is why anytime you are running a tool in the PE mode, it's easiest to put it on a flash drive) ;)

For example:


This will be a nice feature when it's ready.
