Ad-Aware 8.3.1 has shut down twice since I downloaded it a week ago, while browsing with Firefox 3.6.8, with AVG 9.0 and Spybot Search & Destroy 22.214.171.124 doing real-time protection, on Windows XP Home Edition SP3. The shut-down message was that it encountered an error and shut down unexpectedly. I sent Lavasoft the reports.
In other topic threads, "Ad Aware shut down unexpectedly during scan" and "Ad-Aware 8.3.1 shuts down unexpectedly on start-up." In my case, Ad-Aware was doing real-time Ad Watch, not a system scan or starting up (I had been browsing for awhile), so I presume the problem involved Ad-Watch (or Web Update).
Regarding conflicts, the previous version of Ad-Aware did not encounter this problem, and I had both AVG and Spybot then (although both AVG and Spybot were updated when I updated Ad-Aware to 8.3.1).
Has anyone else experienced this new release shutting down while doing real time protection, not a system scan or start-up?
