That is odd that it's having trouble running, especially since all the other anti-malware tools you downloaded ran, so it could either be that something on your system such as another security app is blocking it, or there is some odd underlying compatibility issue with something on the system preventing it from running.  Please do the following and we can try to see what's going on with it:

  1. Download and run the Malwarebytes Support Tool
  2. Accept the EULA and click Advanced tab on the left (not Start Repair)
  3. Click the Gather Logs button, and once it completes, attach the zip file it creates on your desktop to your next reply

Thanks, there are some pending file operations from other apps, so please restart the system just to allow those to process, then try running ADWCleaner again and let us know how it goes.

If it still doesn't work, please give it a try in Safe Mode with Networking as described here to see if it works there.

If the problem still persists, please follow the instructions in this topic, skipping any steps you are unable to complete, then create a new topic in our malware removal area by clicking here and a malware removal specialist will guide you in checking the system and hopefully correcting whatever it might be that is preventing ADWCleaner from launching properly.

Please let us know how it goes.
