Adaware 2007 Service In Tray

29 posts in this topic

Hi everybody, just thought I would give you my input on this topic. As far as I know, you can disable the Ad-Aware 2007 Service as follows:

 

Start -> Run

Type "services.msc"

Find "Ad-Aware 2007 Service"

Right click -> Properties

Change "Startup Type" to "Disabled"

Click Apply and OK

Close Services

Restart

 

That sorted it for me anyway.

 

Cheers

I never thought of doing that. With the update the icon is gone but aawservice is still loading (starting automatically.) Since the free version does not have the ability to do scheduled scans, is it okay to disable this service?

Thanks for your input. I used your advice because the process was using too much memory. Only instead of disabling the service I chose 'manual'. When disabled ad-aware wouldn't start (1810 error). Now I can close the process and it won't reappear without starting the application again.

Well, I found out something.

 

I edited the Registry and got rid of the icon but then when I tried to open the program I received the following message:System error 1810 has occurred.

DESCRIPTION: Service is not online. Application terminates.

 

It would appear that if you don't have that process running then you can't use the program. I'll either go back to a previous version or re-install 2007 and take the icon.

 

 

Glad the update fixed this problem.
