  1. Hi, I'm having adware problems (popups on Google Chrome, the only web browser I use), so i decided to install the free version of Ad-Aware 11. I downloaded the installer (edit: I also tried the standalone installer at http://www.lavasoft.com/mylavasoft/support/supportcenter/run_on_a_frozen_pc/ad-aware-standalone-installer with no success), but as soon as I double click on it, it says: (rough translation: This application cannot be executed in this computer. To search for a version for your computer, contact the software editor") I´m using 64-bit Windows 8.1 on a laptop. Thank you in advance for your answer System Info.zip

  3. Since installing windows 8.1 build 9600 and Ad-Aware there is a bug that causes Windows 8.1 to give a false chkdsk error. restart to repair drive errors (important) Removing Ad-aware removes the announcement. I was very happy with your software so far, also it doesn't seem to does any damage. Perhaps it has to do with a boot protection measure? Following sites list this issue as well: http://www.eightforums.com/drivers-hardware/18812-restart-repair-drive-errors-keep-showing-up-2.html#post371600 http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows8_1-performance/81-keeps-giving-restart-to-repair-drive-errors/ab55de7b-6886-4e83-a288-8c32f2854ac0
