What exactly happens when you try to run AdwCleaner?
Are you getting any error messages?

Have you tried running it in safe mode?

Just tried it in safe mode. Not running too.

There's not even any error messages, it just doesn't run, I click to run AdwCleaner.exe and nothing goes on. It's actually just like clicking in the windows wallpaper, nothing happens.. :/

I can post a note for the developer but you most likely will receive a quicker reply if you ask yourself.

You can ask the developer (Xplode) a question, report an issue or suggestion at his home site: AdwCleaner Feedback <- there is a drop down menu at the top right to "Select language" (English)

Use Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and JRT (Junkware Removal Tool) which detects and removes similar junkware.

So happy now that the problem has been solved!  :lol:
 
 
For those who may face this problem:
 
I've tried this:
 
Run in Windows Safe Mode.
 
Deactivate antivirus and then run AdwCleaner. 
 
For me, these above were not the problem I was dealing with, so I did this:
 
Search for common troubles / issues about Aut2exe / AutoIT.
 
http://www.solvusoft.com/en/files/error-virus-removal/exe/windows/autoit-team/aut2exe/aut2exe-exe/
 
Scan your PC with your antivirus, windows defender..
 
Install and run CCleaner.
 
Install all updates for Windows.
 
This should solve the problem, just like did for me.   :thumbup2:

You never mentioned Aut2exe & AutoIT.

FYI: When searching for malware removal assistance (and removal guides) on the Internet, it is not unusual to find numerous hits from untrustworthy and scam sites which mis-classify detections or provide misleading information. This is deliberately done more as a scam to entice folks into buying an advertised fix or removal tool. In some cases if the fix is a free download, users may be enticed to download a malicious file or be redirected to a malicious web site. If the information is provided by a "so-called" Tech Support site, you are typically referred to contact their support staff for assistance if (when) the suggested instructions do not work. In most cases that assistance is only provided for a fee and many times the actual amount is not disclosed until after you have committed yourself. Do not follow such advice or download any removal tools from unknown or untrusted web sites.

Glad in this case, the instructions worked for you but I disabled the link...

Instructions for posting advice in Am I Infected

Posting referral links to non-Bleeping Computer malware removal guides is NOT permitted with the exception of well known security vendors like Kaspersky, ESET, Symantec, etc which sometimes release specialized fix tools with instructional documentation. This is because there are far too many untrustworthy and scam sites which mis-classify detections or provide misleading information and poor removal advice. It is impractical for our staff to monitor and review all such guides for accuracy, therefore, we will not permit members helping others to refer to any of them.
