When i start JRT.exe from the Desktop all i get is a blank cmd Window (the title of the window is simply the path to cmd.exe and not "Junkware Removal Tool by Thisisu - Version 6.1.4" )


Running Windows 8.1 x64 here.


Allowed to run as Admin, and disabled Windows Defender, no Windows Firewall prompt.


Is this normal?

You can ask the developer (thisisu) a question, report an issue or suggestion in this topic which he monitors for issues with JRT.

And you can always ask a question (leave a comment/suggestion) on thisisu's JRT Blog.
