Adwords Editor not starting

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello,

 

This is a big issue for me. In the last 2 weeks while I was working in Adwords Editor and clicked for an action, it sometimes closed for no reason. The app just closed and when I started it up again it was back in the same window, with no changes lost.

 

Since this morning, my Adwords Editor doesn't start up at all. I only get the splash screen and the nothing. Nothing in task manager as well.

 

I tried restarting my computer and I tried reinstalling Adwords Editor. No luck.

 

I'm running Windows 8 on 64 bit.

 

Please help!

Hi Alex,

Have you tried to initate Adwords Editor with "admin permission"? You can achieve right-clicking the shortcut, or if it's not there, right-click while holding shift on your keyboard.

You can try and enter windows on security mode and see if Editor works. If it does work on Security Mode, something is creating conflict on your normal windows.

Can you make the tests?

I tried the first idea, and now I also tried while in Safe Mode. Absolutely no change.

Another thing is that I haven't installed anything new these past few days. No new program that might interfere.

Hi Alex..the only other thing I can think off it to add Editor on the White List of your anti-virus. Other than that...I'm really out of ideas

It's a mystery...

I only use Windows Defender.

I guess I'm gonna have to reinstall Windows.
