Ad-aware 2007 keeps crashing (Vista)

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am trying to run Ad-aware 2007 on my machine running Windows Vista Home Premium.

 

The install goes OK, but whenever I try to run Ad-aware or Ad-watch, the program craps itself. (see attached image)

 

I have tried:


  • Turning Aero off in Compatibility Settings
  • Running it as Administrator (I have UAC turned on)
  • Running it in XP SP2 mode.

I really do not understand why it will not run, because windows Vista has been realeased since December 2006 and Lavasoft states that Ad-aware '07 will work with Vista.

 

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. :blink:

Hi Brayden,

 

Are you running 32-bit or 64-bit Vista?

 

At present AAW 2007 supports 32-bit Vista with an upgrade supporting 64-bit due out soon.

 

Regards,

 

Spike

Hi Brayden,

 

Are you running 32-bit or 64-bit Vista?

 

Same issue, I am using 32 bit vista home premium, up to date, and freshly installed.

 

I suspect this is Data Execution Prevention, but it usually notifies you if it blocks a program. ( to unblock a program, right click on the computer icon, go to properties, then on the top left, select advanced system settings, then uder performance click "settings" there should be a Data execution prevention tab, under that tab, select "Turn on DEP for all programs and services, except those i select" and then on the bottom click "add", and find the .exe file that it is blocking and select it. then click apply.) I just tried it on mine, it worked! :unsure:

 

I also have the same problem with spyware doctor installer and avant browser. here is the error details i get when i try to open ad-aware,

 

Ad aware 2007 has stopped working:
