  1. Hello, I have a program installed that is detected (correctly) as a hacktool. When I load the program, without fail, Ad Aware quanrentines it, rending the program inoperable. I then have to disable the real time protection and restore the file. I have tried adding the file to the ignore list, to no avail. Even on the list, it closes the program when I open it unless real time protection is disabled. I can't put this in the false positive thread because technically its not a false positive, but it is not a hacktool that is a threat to me. How do I get Ad Aware to truly leave my .dll alone?
  2. I want to exclude scanning of a particular folder (in this case, the quarantine folder of another anti-malware product). But it will only let me add *files* to the Ignore List, not folders. This is Ad-Aware Free Antivirus+ I've never seen a limitation like this in other free a/v.
