  1. In a word - no (certainly not significantly). The Ad-Aware Icon has disappeared from the System Tray, and I can activate it on demand by clicking on the desktop icon - which is what I intended. On booting up however when I watch the task manager I see that by far the main process in memory is Adawareservice.exe which somehow I have been unable to disable. It doesn't appear to figure in the msconfig start menu. Can you let me into the secret?
  2. I have unchecked "Adawarebp" and "AdawareTray" hoping that this is what you intended. The idea is to reduce my very long bootup times (main resource hog is Adaware apparently) but still allow me to access the program on demand once my system is up and running.
  3. I was under the impression that I had indeed done a compatible install - that was certainly the original intention - but the program still fires up automatically on booting up. Can this be changed? Do I have to uninstall and reinstall? If so how can I get it to fire up only on demand?
  4. How can I configure Ad-Aware Free so that it doesn't autorun when I boot up but is available "on demand"? I can't see how to access the settings. Tks
  5. [quote name='cressy' post='118240' date='Mar 22 2010, 11:53 PM']Are you using Internet Explorer and did you install Download Guard when you installed Ad-Aware? If so You need to disable it in IE Add-Ons. This is a known bug that is being worked on.[/quote] Hi Yes I use IE 8. I'm not 100% sure if I installed Download Guard but it is quite probable. I have uninstalled Ad-Adware 2010 in the interim - with beneficial results (!). Are you recommending me to reinstall it (the original download file is still on my hard drive I believe) but somehow to ensure that Download Guard is omitted? Or has v. 8 been patched recently which would make it preferable for me to start again from the beginning? Tks. P.S I assume this bug must be affecting just about all users who opted for Download Guard, not just me. I would imagine that there should be shouting from the rooftops when the Fix is released.
  6. I uninstalled the Anniversary edition when I deduced that this was preventing me from downloading file attachments - even common file types such as Word and Excel which I had sent to myself! - and this seemed to cure the problem. I read somewhere about a patch that fixed this but instead I installed Ad-Aware 2010 Free. Looks like the problem has come back. Can't find any reference to this in FAQ'a, perhaps I am missing something. I use Yahoo webmail and Windows XP Home. Is the only solution to quit using Ad-Aware?
