  1. It takes a little over 3 days to do a full scan on my computer. I've notices that the duration time counter wraps back to zero after 24 hours, i.e. it doesn't count the days of duration time. When the scan completes, it will show something like 3 hours of duration when in fact it's been three days plus three hours. Then the status shows "At Risk" because it has been "too long" since the last system scan, even though a full scan just completed. If I tell Adaware to "Fix this now" it immediately starts a quick scan. On another note, I see I'm not the only one annoyed by the pop-up message "Adaware will continue to protect..." when you minimize it to the system tray. I have noticed that on Windows 7 this is less annoying because the pop-up goes away after a few seconds, but on Windows XP it stays up until you click it. It would be nice to be able to turn this off, especially in conjunction with keeping the Adaware Icon visible in the system tray so I have some way of knowing that protection is active. All in all, neither of these things will make me change to another malware protection provider, but it would be nice if they were addressed in future releases. Regards, Gabor
