  1. This morning I came to my Win7 desktop pc to find what sounds like the hard drive or perhaps the fan cycling. The computer appeared to operate normally except I got a Windows warning about no security software running. Sure nuff, the Ad-Aware icon was missing from the system tray. By this time IE had loaded and soon after I got a large popup and an audio announcement to the effect that Microsoft had detected malware that was stealing my data and to call a toll free number. This was clearly bogus which I confirmed in a google search on another computer. I opened up the Ad-Aware software from the "search programs and files" feature on the Start menu. only to get a "Service Unavailable" message and "Adaware not Activated" status. Following suggestions on Google, I cleared my IE browser temporary files to get rid of the bogus error popup messages. I rebooted Win 7. I am still unable to turn on Ad-Aware protection. I still get the "service unavailable" message. The hard drive/fan cycling has settled down. Any ideas? I have the free version of Ad-Aware... should be the latest version (11?) Need info to restore Ad-Aware
