BUT that is not the case here. And note that only one type of scan fails.
People, The problem "Ad-Aware was shut down unexpectedly and has generated an error report" continues with v8.3. The system is XP SP3 with Avast as the AV checker and Comodo as the firewall. The problem occurs when you use mode smart scan. Using profile scan the scan completes. Two error message windows are produced, both with the same error. If this is a high priority problem as the locked messages indicate, surely the problem should have been fixed by now. Dave
