need help!/A/C bad odor

I have a '99 Pontiac Bonneville, and since three daays ago when I turn the a/c on there is a bad smell a bad odor, like a dead animal or like a burned wire mix together, I don't even know how to discribe it, I check to see if there was a dead animal but I didn't find anything suspicious, any idea what might be happening?, any advice or coment; the A/c works, but it's not as cold as it should be.

Thank you.

Not sure about POntiacs, but if there is a microfilter, or cabon filter, try to have that replaced. Chances are it's all plugged up with leaves, and other debris.

It has made a ton of difference on some of my cars. That's the least expensive, and easiest thing to replace usually. If it's still not blowing very cold, and smells.... get the AC system checked out. It may very well just need a recharge, as stated above by the previous response.
