  1. I installed version of AdAware 2007.

    Afterwards I copied the whole folder tree from


    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware 2007




    D:\security\testantispyware\lavasoft adaware\mysettings\


    The I set in WebUpdate->Settings->User defintions file

    the new location

    At last I restarted AdWare.


    Much to my surprise Adaware does not recognize the settings and defintions location switch

    Adware tells me something about corrupt defintions file


    Yes, I clicked "Save" after I entered the new location. One of the curios things is If I

    browse again for the defintions file then the dialog starts again in the installation folder of AdAware and not - as expected - in the last set location INSTALLDIR\mysettings\


    Whats wrong?


    Why can't I see the whole entry field for the defintions file? Normally the user can set the cursor into such an entry field and move to the right to see the full path + file name. This is not possible in Adaware. Why?


    How can I switch otherwise the location ?


    Is passing the defintions file dir through command line possible ?



  2. By default the folder for the definitions and *.ini and *.key is


    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware 2007


    Is there a way to move this folder to another location (e.g. the installation folder




    Unfortuantely I did not found an entry field in the settings.

    maybe there is a command line option ?
