    I have belatedly realised that the problem with AdwCleaner 8 not executing on Windows 8.1 and 10 is due to my use of mandatory ASLR. It is the only application I have so far found that has fallen foul of mandatory ASLR.

    No such issues have been experienced with AdwCleaner 7 and earlier.

    must be something special on your system, ASLR enabled (permanent) here and running.
    which antivirus is installed, any other security software running? in special on win10?
