Windows 7: AdwCleaner Quarantine folder removal

AdwCleaner Quarantine folder removal


I have installed AdwCleaner on an infected computer to remove the malware. The tool detected many things and removed some of them; however, it moved some of them into the quarantine. How can I get rid of the files and folder in this folder for good? Removing the folder by Shift+Del does not remove the relevant files from the quarantine manager in AdwCleaner. Any help/suggestion is welcome.

Thanks in advance

try reloading the quarantine manager (restert the program) and see if they are still there after you deleted the folder.

Try uninstalling ADW, as one of the options you usually get is delete Quarantine files

You can reinstall ADW afterwards.
