  1. Dear Ad Aware users Thank you for your posts in here and informing us about this issue. We apologize for the inconvenience. We are currently addressing this issue from the reports you have sent through the Error Box.
  2. This is actually the intended functionality, since we do not want the user to navigate away from the scanning screen while a scan is being performed. Regards
  3. Hi You can go to the software's main screen and click on the Statistics tab. In the Display drop-down, you can check the dates of all the performed scans so far. By selecting a specific date in this drop-down, you can see the list of actions that has been performed within that scan (e.g. number of items quarantined, removed and etc.) If you wanna decide for yourself what you wanna do with the found objects after a scheduled scan has been performed, create a scheduled scan with the Manual Option selected for it's HOW section Hope this information was useful to you. As a paid user, you can also get direct support from our Technical Support Team through the support center:

To access the Windows Event viewer, # Click Start, and then click Control Panel. Click Performance and Maintenance, then click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Computer Management. Or, open the MMC containing the Event Viewer snap-in. # In the console tree, click Event Viewer. Now select Application from the sub items of the Event Viewer and check the list in the right pane. Click on any error you might see in the list and if the Source says : Lavasoft Ad Aware Service, please double click it and post a screenshot of it We appreciate your assistance with us Regards Laleh - QA Specialist

This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly.
