Help! getting "Error 12029" - could AAW be blocking access to an FTP site? in Ad-Aware 8.x (2010 Ver) - Resolved/Inactive Posted March 1, 2010 · Report reply i did this. it has no effect. in light of the problems i've had with the new version of AAW, i kind of assumed there might be something running in the background or hidden which could be the cause.
