I read all of the posts from Oct through Dec. 2009, when Lavasoft said this problem was fixed and to start a new thread if Adaware still hung during a scan. I have updated to the latest release and all of the issues reported previously are still there. Two problems in the critical area, but I cannot launch Adaware to remove them. Everytime I scan the program aborts and requests that I send the error (which I have). I have disabled Norton's--no success. Any help will be appreciated.
